Winemaker Chaim Gur-Arieh Notes
Most of the grapes used for making this wine came from a hillside vineyard owned by Oakmont Vineyards. This is the fifth year that we are making Syrah from this vineyard and the terroir is definitely identifiable. We picked the fruit when it was completely mature and hand sorted it. We delayed the fermentation by two days and used our Submerged Cap Fermentation Tank that keeps the skins submerged throughout the fermentation for better flavor extraction and softer tannins.

This wine has deep red color with a classical Syrah aroma of black and green peppercorn combined with a woody cedar character. The dark berry flavors carry to the palate adding layers of cherry and pomegranate. This well balanced wine is full of bright fruit ...more... and very dry. The wine finishes with a long and lingering finish adding smoky meaty notes.
