Tasting NOTES

Inviting aromas of white floral, fresh berries and vanilla are followed by smooth, round flavors of deep black cherry and dark cocoa woven with layers of black spice and smoked meat. A bit on the younger side, we recommend aging this wine for a few months, but if you must, decant now and enjoy this stellar vintage for Sonoma Syrah on your own time.

Vineyard NOTES

Eight miles north of San Pablo Bay, the Bundschu family's 160+ year-old vineyard wraps around the southwest slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains. The terrain features steep, southwest-facing hillsides of shallow, rocky soils of volcanic ash and alluvial wash. Pervasive maritime breezes and long daylight exposure allow fruit to develop intense concentration while retaining vibrant structure.

Production NOTES

Hand-harvested in the cool morning
Twice-daily pump-overs
Weekly battonage during the indigenous malolacic fermentation
