Our 4.6 acre parcel of Tablas clone Syrah was planted on the highest hill of our estate—the site of an ancient riverbank—25 years ago. Our diurnal climate ripens the grapes during the warm days, then sends the vines into hibernation during the cool nights to preserve acid and structure, resulting in fruit of great elegance and balance. Rhône aficionado Jeb Dunnuck tastes and reviews this wine each year. Here's what he had to say about our 2020 vintage:
"The 2020 Syrah Estate is also terrific, with a seamless, medium to full-bodied style that brings lots of red and black fruits as well as ground pepper and some gamey, floral nuances. This round, supple, pleasure-bent, and incredibly sexy Syrah is best drunk over the coming 5-7 years. 92 points"
