Some believe Syrah is the best red of the Paso Robles Appellation. You may think the same after a glass of this wine! In the aroma you will find a high intensity and balance of berry fruits, violets and oak. The mouth feel is lush with characteristically moderate levels of tannin. The bright fruit and oak flavors linger on the palate. The moderate acidity and appealing level of astringency make for a versatile wine that pairs well with anything from appetizers to heavy meat dishes.

The net effect of wine is positive, and so, even after twenty-four harvests, my passion for winemaking remains strong.”
