The winery’s one and only syrah, shows less affinities with the New World and Australian Shiraz trend, its more similar to a hot Rhone Valley-style. The grapes come from the flat Ingeborg vineyard in the eastern, hotter part of the Santa Ynez AVA, closer to the Happy Canyon AVA. A 100% syrah wine from a sandy-clay subsoil covered with river gravel, for which a clone of the variety called “Estrella” was used with a load of 1.5 kg / capital. Early September harvest. Aged for 28 months in 80% French, 20% Hungarian oak barrels. It was bottled without filtration. The aromaprofil contains blackberry, roasted chestnut, pine nuts, smoked meat, and also some fine chocolate, saltiness and tobacco are also present. 2600 bottles were made.
