"The 2014 Syrah comes from a number of sites in the central coast and spent 18 months in 60% new French oak. It has a big, sweet nose of toasted spice, black raspberries, cassis and toasted bread. This carries to a sexy, polished and textured Syrah that has lots of sweet fruit and a solid finish." (WA)

"Blackberry and ripe elderberry meet with white pepper and thyme on the nose of this bottling by winemaker Tyler Russell. It's soft and syrupy on the sip, with rich blueberry, blackberry and a touch of kirsch made more interesting by a hint of anise and mint on the finish." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Undeniably Central Coast Syrah on the nose. Ripe dark fruit is apparent right off the back, then morphs into dried fig and subtleties of roasted lamb. Demanding at first taste and driven by fruit. Tannins are round and slightly velvety. The dark fruit remains with you throughout its long and chewy finish. Hard to put down the glass as it evolves.

Four different vineyards in this beast. Kiler Canyon, Glen Rose (Westside Paso Robles), Zaca Mesa (Santa Ynez), and Kimsey (Ballard Canyon). Being 95 miles apart and all from fairly warm locations is what dictates the fruit forward nature of this wine. All picked based on taste. Cold soaked until fermentation takes off. Managed according to need. 65% new french oak. Never racked. Bottled unfiltered 18 months after initial fill.
