The 2015 growing season was the latest in a trend of being the warmest on record for our valley.  The last week of June had the highest temperatures we’ve seen! The record-breaking heat gave way to cooler days and nights around veraison, allowing the fruit to develop perfectly. The last week of  August brought harvest: our earliest ever. Wines of this vintage are richly structured, showcasing ripe fruit and floral characteristics.

2015 Syrah

Awards & Accolades
90 Points, Jeb Dunnuck: "...offers lots of plum, spice, and peppery herb aromatics, medium to full-bodied richness, and no hard edges."
90 Points and Year's Best Syrah List, Wine & Spirits: "Fairly classic in its restraint and in its expression of bottle age, this syrah leads with scents of lavender and shiitake mushroom broth. While savory throughout, it has a chewy black-currant core of fruit that offsets the savor nicely."
91 Points, Wine Advocate: ""
