2019 Syrah, Hawks Butte Vineyard, Yorkville Highlands

This is our first vineyard designate from Hawks Butte ~ our newest but most exciting tete de cuveé. It was a part of our North Coast Syrah for a few years while we were slowly working more into the vineyard and finally have established enough to showcase its pedigree to its fullest extent. This might be our favorite California Syrah- which is saying a lot and there's some great ones out there. Slightly softer with more generous fruit tones then the rustic Halcon vineyard but equally complex and wildly aromatic. At 1500 ft. with rocky, south facing slopes in the chilly Yorkville Highlands situated just below Anderson Valley, its nearly identical in stature to the Northern Rhone and certainly tastes like it. Light but elegantly textured, ebulliently perfumed and spiced full of all the things we adore about Syrah- lavender, violet, olive, peppercorn and graphite.
