This wine is comprised of equal parts Grenache and Syrah, both grown on steep southwest facing slopes at John Sebastiano Vineyard. This site features densely-planted rows on what’s kind of a peak rising from the eastern outskirts of Sta Rita Hills. The relative elevation makes for a fierce raking by cold Pacific winds, so the fruit ripens late and is consistently intriguing with spicy and savory earth notes, and the tannins are consistently powdery fine.

Without sulfites used at any stage this wine offers a wholly different sense of juicy texture and openness. Flavors roll forward with the ease of a long unfurling rug. The flavor impact is powerful but creamy, rounded, and it paves the way for plush purply waves of cassis and mulberry, then a smoky crackle of pepper, roasted herbs and allspice. Typically we’ve seen the Grenache and Syrah grappling for dominance in their first year in bottle, but in this 2018 they’ve strutted lock step for months now.
