Outstanding aromas of strawberries and orange zest emerge once opened.
Lush peach flavors entice one’s attention, and
bright acidity keeps you coming back for more. Certainly a summer’s delight to be enjoyed as a starter with a lightly-dressed

The fruit looked stunning this year! Crop levels were light once again due to five years of drought; however, the quality was
amazing. Fortunately we did not suffer from any considerable heat spikes in 2016, which held back vine stress and yielded
loose clusters with perfect berry size and highly concentrated flavors. Mother Nature has given us a fifth consecutive vintage
of stellar quality in our Coombsville estate property.

Whole cluster pressed, our Syrah was fermented in 2-ton stainless steel tanks. The lees was stirred daily for the first couple
of weeks to increase mouthfeel perception and the fermentation culminated in hand selected neutral barrels.
