In 2011, we’d picked the final 7 tons of Syrah, rain was forecast for the following day...and our destemmer broke. We had 14 bins of Syrah and no way to crush it. With no alternative, we dumped the fruit into two open top fermenters--stems and all.  A few weeks later we opened the bottom valves, only to be blown away by the most floral, exhilarating aromas imaginable.  The flavors followed suit and the wine became an instant staff and consumer favorite.  Only one name seemed even remotely appropriate: Hail Mary.
