A limited-production (183 cases) wine from the estate vineyard. It's a supple, smooth, solid effort, not as substantial as their other Syrah, yet far pricier. You'll find typical Syrah fruit, perhaps a bit too much chalky tannin, and a nicely resolved finish. Overall it's clean, sharp and true to the varietal.
