These Syrah grapes were grown in the Coombsville and Atlas Peak regions of south eastern Napa. They were picked late in the season, then whole berryã€€fermented in small half ton boxes. After fermentation the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for seventeen months. The nose of the wine offers aromas of black cherry and blackberry along with underlying floral nuances. The texture is soft, yet the wine maintains wonderful structure. This is a versatile wine that will accompany a wide array of dishes.
