Winemaker Corey Beck Notes
Diamond Collection Syrah-Shiraz demonstrates remarkable richness and complexity as a result of blending fruit from several Central California appellations. Our San Lucas vineyard, located at the southern end of Monterey County, is characterized by welldrained loamy soils, which produce highly concentrated Syrah that offers luscious berry aromas. Grapes from Paso Robles contribute red fruit flavors, texture and body while the small amount of Petite Sirah from Hames Valley provides our wine with structure. Because crop yields were extremely low in 2008, this year’s wine is one of the most intensely concentrated we’ve produced.

In the cellar, the grapes are cold-soaked for 48 hours. Then, the must is heated for a short fe ...more... rmentation. The stems of the grapes are added to the tank for a period of time as well, to enhance the spicy, peppery aromas Syrah is known for. Finally, we age in French oak to integrate the wine’s rich, expressive flavors.
