Nearly all California Syrah is trained on a trellis.  Our single acre of Headpruned Syrah is grown in the traditional style still favored in France’s Rhone Valley.  This alternative approach to canopy management creates a protected environment where the fruit ripens slowly and evenly (rather than via direct blasts of afternoon sun), preserving aromatics and dramatically decreasing the jammy flavors often associated with California Syrah. The prettiest, purest Syrah fruit we’ve found in California...if only we had more!

Tasting Notes
