There is no doubt about the variety here.  The dark color and brooding aromatics are a dead giveaway.  This wine bridges the divide between cold and warm climate Syrah.  It possesses some of the pepper and high-toned aromatics one expects to find in colder regions.  It also has the ripe fruit and thick palate one associates with warmer sites.  Very big, very rich, and very good.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our Estate San Saba Vineyard is set in a sheltered nook just below the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. The estate consists of 72 acres of which 67.75 are planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Falanghina. This is a cool site with little rainfall and one of the longest growing seasons in the world. Our soils, Arroyo Gravelly Loam and Hanford Gravely Sandy Loam, provide a low-vigor, well-draining, disease- and pest-free medium for our vines. They also impart a subtle mineral quality to our wines. To preserve our local ecosystem, we have worked with viticultural consultant Steve McIntyre to develop a sustainable farming program (SIP), certified by CCVT, tailored to our estate. In addition to protecting the local environment, we believe it allows us to produce wines that are more authentic and specific to our terroir.
