New product

Marking our return to making Syrah after a 5 year break from the varietal, we went back to the original vineyard farmed by the Spencer family.  Having always loved this varietal, we were excited to bring back the big plush aromas and loads of structure on the palate Syrah is known for.

More info

The Spencer vineyard is a 43 acre vineyard nestled in the Jackson Valley at the western edge of Amador County.  This distinct vineyard site takes advantage of 500 acres of neighboring irrigated pasture and five lakes that surround the region.  The resulting moderate temperatures are further cooled by nighttime air spilling down the Sierras and becoming trapped in this quaint valley.  Soils are well drained, alluvial, fine sandy loam soils that produce well-structured wines with god acidity levels.

Picked very ripe we fermented in small macro bins and punched down by hand 2-3 times daily before pressing off and oak aging for 14 months.  

Vivid, dark ruby in color this wine is viscus.  On the nose, pleasing aromas of candied cherry preserves are layered with deep undertones of ripe blackberry, cola and lingering notes of cocoa.  On the palate, it's rich and silky finishing in a bold, supple tannin structure and lingering ripe fruit and sweet oak.
