Winemaker Corey Beck Notes
Our unique Syrah-Shiraz is sourced from three specific vineyards in the Central Coast and blended with small amounts of Petite Sirah so that it’s extremely dark and lush.

From San Lucas, we get extremely supple fruit that undergoes a particularly long ripening period due to sloping southeastern vineyards which experience fewer hours of intense daily sunlight. This fruit contributes a high level of concentration and intense blackberry aromas. The grapes harvested from our Paso Robles vineyard, on the other hand, provide red raspberry flavors and a velvety texture. We also add a small amount of Petite Sirah from Hames Valley for heightened depth and structure.

Upon harvest, the grapes are de-stemmed; however, a portion ...more... of the stems are later added to the fermentation tank, which is a winemaking technique that imparts a white pepper aroma. After a 48-hour cold soak to extract color, the must is heated to 90° F and inoculated before fermentation. Once complete, the wine is racked into French oak barrels for aging.
