AMAZING JUICE FROM THIS UP AND COMING SUPERSTAR!!...THE HIGHEST QUALITY!!

"A wine of distinction and breadth, with an expressive core of crushed-stone minerality, wrapped in complex blackberry, garrigue and freshly cracked pepper flavors that build toward big but polished tannins. Best from 2021 through 2026. -T.F." (WS)

"The purple-hued 2017 Fracture (100% Syrah aging in 65% new barrels) is another wine that shows a more fresh, elegant style, all while still packing rock star levels of fruit and texture. Cassis, vanilla bean, spice, and background oak notes all emerge from this full-bodied Syrah that has a clean, balanced texture, terrific mid-palate depth, and fabulous tannin quality. It’s going to benefit from just short-term cellaring and cruise for a decade." (JD)

Winery Notes:
Just over half of our property is planted with Syrah. We put our best barrels of Syrah into Fracture and then age in 228L Barriques. The name is a tribute to the high content of limestone in our soil. Limestone causes our vineyard soil to fracture rather than crumble.
