2012 Syrah, Santa Lucia Highlands   

Blueberries, cassis and a dominant, glorious white pepper spice shine out in this first offering of our Santa Lucia highlands Syrah. These wonderful characters carry through onto the big soft luscious palate and lingers on the finish.

The vineyard for this new syrah offering is located in the cooler region of the Santa Lucia Highlands close to the Tondre’ Pinot Noir vineyard. This cooler area allows the inherent white pepper spice of this varietal to shine through.
