Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe blackberry, anise, bacon jam, violet and demi-glace. On the palate, this wine is very robust with velvety, mouth coating tannins. Dark French roast coffee and cocoa nib derived from our oak barrel program smooths out the mid and back palate.

Vineyard Notes

The sub appellation of Saint Helena lies in the northern half of the Napa Valley, situated at the valley’s narrowest point. This choke point provides warmer day and nighttime temperatures and less exposure to fog. Soils consist mostly of sedimentary and gravel-clay composition, derived from the Napa River’s prehistoric route.

Winemaker Notes

"Every winemaker should have a favorite varietal, and mine is Syrah. It is complex, vivacious, and delicious. Its signature spice and dark berry aromas and flavors, as well as its black sheep reputation, have fascinated me since adolescence." -Charles McKahn, Winemaker

Ratings

Wine Enthusiast - 92 Points December 2017 "Smoked plum fruit is adorned with leather, coffee and dark cherry notes in this delicious, vibrant, full-bodied wine. Soft and rounded at the edges and dark and dense on the palate, a lick of acidity keeps it buoyant." - VB
