2017 Desert Wind Syrah
Our 2017 Syrah was sourced from vines planted in 1994 at the Desert Wind Vineyard. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel with 11 days of skin contact, and then aged 17 months in barrel. The resulting wine is bold, with velvety tannins and wonderful aromas of blackberry, coffee and vanilla.
