2019 SYRAH SLIDE HILL VINEYARD
This beautiful Syrah comes from a single acre of Syrah growing in a rather famous corridor up in Edna Valley. This hillside vineyard is certified organic and Biodynamic and grows in rather poor soils. Our yields have gotten smaller and smaller since our first vintage, so there is precious little of this beauty to go around. This vintage, more than all the others, shows off the potential for the site. The wine is super showy, dark, complex and downright fun to drink - a real departure from previous vintages. The warmth of the vintage shines through with dark blue fruits, toasty oak and baking spices. Though quite drinkable now, it will reward the patient over the next decade.
