Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 growing season was near perfect, absent of any extreme weather episodes. The incredible growing conditions, coupled with lower crop size, yielded wines with succinct fruit and incredible focus. Approximately one third of this fruit was whole-cluster fermented, and the remaining two tons was co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier, continuing our tradition of using traditional Northern Rhone winemaking techniques.
Vineyard Notes
Our family’s Rockpile Ridge Vineyards are located at nearly 1,200 ft. elevation in the Rockpile appellation. The Syrah is planted in the Madrone Spring block which is named after a year-round spring that flows through the roots of an old Madrone tree. This block receives minimal sun due to its eastern exposure and it shows in the complexity of flavor. We envisioned this site yielding a Northern Rhone style of Syrah and we have not been disappointed.
