100% Heart Hill Vineyard, paso robles Willow Creek AVA
79% Syrah, 9% Grenache, 5% Malbec, 5% Petite Sirah 2% Marsanne
This wine is an example of the density and sheer mass that is held within the Syrah grown at Heart Hill Vineyard and we designed winemaking to complement this. A slow, cool fermentation helped us increase the length and extract all the flavor components from the skins to create an exceptionally dark-hued wine that captures your attention right out of the bottle with meaty aromatics full of dark fruits & pepper. A finely grained & textured palate is studded with dark chocolate, berry pie & white pepper notes outlined by tannins.
