An intriguing Syrah-Cab blend from a new, micro-producer in the Capay Valley, a farm region east of the Napa Valley where Laura Barrett, previously of Fisher Vineyards, is making the wines and Ursula Hermacinski, previously of Screaming Eagle, heads up sales and marketing. This first effort is rich and a touch wild, big and still tight, but full of savory sage and forest floor, as well as blackberry and vanilla. Huge potential here.
