Kiler Canyon is a magical location for syrah that is known for having some of the best syrah vineyards around. The meticulous approach and high tech knowledge at the vineyard makes a big difference in the end product. The hand-picked harvest took place on a foggy morning in October and was then trucked to the winery in one-two ton bins. 100% Syrah
Syrah and pungeons make a traditional combo that never fails. We moved the juice after a two week fermentation, and our Syrah already had that inky characteristic proper to the varietal. The wine was aged 24 months in new 500-liter pungeons.

Big and spicy are the two words that come to mind. Very different from the Parker style, this wine should age beautifully for at least a decade.
