2014 Wrath Ex Anima Syrah

Dark berries and savory notes of smoke, black pepper and spices highlight the pure character of Syrah grown in a cold-climate, without the influence of new oak.

The 2014 Ex Anima Syrah, aged only in neutral oak, presents an clean, clear expression of the three Syrah clones grown in our estate vineyard.  Concentrated dark berry aromas define the nose with secondary notes of smoke, cocoa, licorice, and beef jerky.  Round, mouth-filling dark berry and licorice notes pair with olive, black pepper and smoke held together with bright acidity and long finish.

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 CCVT certified sustainable farming program 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.
