A core of high-toned red fruit, mushrooms and twigs, with lots of life and a finish of ground gravel. Not your meaty Syrah, this is light, pretty and zippy.
This is Mokelumne AVA Syrah grown in sand near the Mokelumne river. Vines are 30+ years old and we pick at low sugars and foot tread whole clusters in an open top tank. Then we press to neutral puncheons after a week of extended maceration.
