Vineyard: Eagles Nest is our Estate Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench, where the east-west orientation and famous sandy soil provide for maximum sun exposure and great drainage. Our Syrah is planted 8 by 3 feet, where we harvest less grapes per vine, but of superior quality.

Winemaking:  Grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted followed by the stemmed whole berries and being transferred to fermenting tanks for a five day cold soak, twice daily pump over. Fermentation was maintained at a consistent 26 degrees.

Cooperage: French Oak, 18 months aging

Release Date April 2019

Tasting Note: A robust wine, with an intense, dark berry flavour. Spicy mid palate with hints of red pepper and clove. A long vanilla and black chocolate finish. Serve with prime rib, tenderloin or filet, game, foie gras and strong cheese. Excellent aging potential.
