“From Casablanca, this Syrah presents stirringly bold and complex colors and aromas: wood, smoke, thyme and raspberry. Dry with gentle but discernible tannins where the aging stage enhances the body, this wine flows juicily over the tongue with a pleasant texture at the end.”

“Dark, minty aromas of mentholated blackberry and a pitch-black color announce this lush and layered Syrah. Dark, gamy berry flavors include graphite and chocolaty oak notes, while coffee takes over on a ripe, full-weight finish. This is massive in style. Drink through 2024.”
Our Syrah has been widely recognized and awarded in competitions and magazines at national and international level. A blend of 10 to 15 year old vines sourced from hillside blocks planted on 110 million year old decomposed granite, the grapes were harvested by hand at the end of May and then underwent a double selection process before going into small stainless steel tanks for fermentation. It was then aged for 14 months in used and new French oak barrels. On the nose lifted notes of lavender, violet blueberries and gunpowder. In the mouth black cherry and savory cedar flavors are backed up by fresh acidity and crisp tannins.
