Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The saturated purple-black color of our 2005 Syrah immediately communicates that this is a serious wine. The nose shows intense blue and black fruits with smoke, bacon, and dried herbal notes. The palate reveals richness and depth, the oak is well integrated, and the tannins are supple.

Vineyard Notes
The fruit was sourced from two unique Mendocino County vineyards: Eaglepoint Ranch and Potato Patch. Eaglepoint, one of the most coveted and distinctive vineyards in the county, combines high elevation (1800 feet), mountain loam soil, and meticulous, low-yield farming. Potato Patch vineyards lies at an elevation of 2200 feet, just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean, in the Mendocino Ridge appellation. Both vineyards are cool climate and very late ripening.
Production Notes
The grapes were hand-picked at full maturity. Nearly 40% of the fruit was put into open tops as whole clusters and treaded by foot. The remainder was gently crushed on top. The wine was aged in Burgundian (Francois Freres) oak (50% new), for 18 months, which included six months of native malolactic fermentation. The wine was bottled unfiltered.
