With the power of a semi-truck, this wine packs a punch with layers of spice and fruit, deep aromatics and intense complexity. Chocolate-covered acai berries, tanned leather, olive brine and dark roast coffee beans are amongst the unique flavors that fill the palate. The dense concentration and structure of this wine will hold up to any extreme meal – dark-crusted Prime Rib over mesquite wood would be perfection.
Tucked along the mountainside on a steep slope, block 11d1 experiences slightly warmer temperatures than other blocks in the vineyard and is made almost entirely of sandy loam and chunks of shale. This dynamic block is planted with Syrah Clone 1 & 2 grapes.
