Growing Conditions

Our Syrahs are grown in the cool climate of the Sonoma Coast which offers a style reminiscent of the Northern Rhone regions of Hermitage and Cornas.

The 2012 growing season was close to ideal with temperate and steady temperatures
that produced a long, moderate growing season with extended hang time and even
ripening. In the cool reaches of the Sonoma Coast, harvest waited until the middle
two weeks of October.


October 1st from Cole Creek Vineyard and October 12th from Rodgers Creek Vineyard


Our 2012 Sonoma Coast Syrah was bottled without filtration in June,

The wine rested sur lies for 17 months in 28% new French barrels from François Frère
and Demptos.
