Winemaker's Notes

Our Diablo Syrah takes its name from the clay soil type on which these particular vines are planted. The 2016 vintage boasts jammy, dark fruit with savory notes of wild game, white pepper and fennel. On the palate, the lush boysenberry, blackberry notes come through with silky tannins and refreshing length.
