2014 Edna Valley Slide Hill Vineyard

Syrah

The rolling hills at Slide Hill are situated 7 miles from the Pacific Ocean where cool temperatures insure a long growing season. Combine this with gravely loam soils, natural low yields and biodynamic farming and you get fruit with exceptional balance and depth.

Tasting Notes and Production Details

Dark fruit, dried herbs and pepper dominate the nose. The palate is rich with a core of black fruit and spice that finish dry with you wanting more.
