Producer notes: This truly is a California blend in 2020 and, as usual, is one of the greatest value wines we make. As we have lost a few vineyards in the North Coast to Syrah decline, we have set our eyes to the exquisite soils and cool sites found along the Central Coast, and this wine reflects it. Based around the Syrah planted on dune sand at Whitehawk vineyard just north of Los Alamos, this also features a large pop of Hudson Syrah and Bien Nacido X-block along with a few barrels of Weill a Way. All of the lots were fermented with between 30-80% whole-cluster to contribute spice and perfume, and elevage took place in predominately older puncheons and demi-muids. Pepper, violets, cured meat and blackberry feature prominently here.
Smoky & meaty, with notes of blackberries & violets.
