Description

Our 2012 Elite Syrah is comprised of 100% Syrah fruit sourced from four stellar sites: 25 % each from the following; Hampton, Camp 4, Paradise Road (Santa Barbara County) and Stagecoach (Napa Valley). Winemaker, Blair Fox, chose barrels by some of his preferred coopers, including Seguin Moreau, Remond and Meyrieux (75% new barrels), for the 28-month period of barrel aging that this fine red received.

Aromatically, this wine is generous, with profound notes of boysenberry, blueberry, lilac and smoked meats emerging in the glass. On the palate, look for genteel notes of Herbs de Provence enveloped by more audacious flavors of peppercorn, baking chocolate and backyard plum. A long, lingering finish, and fine-grained tannins suggest this wine can cellar well.
