Cuvée Christine Syrah 2016

This 100% Syrah blend is an intense assemblage of some of our favorite Syrah vineyards in Sonoma County. The usual suspect vineyards are present in this blend; Kobler, Lawer, Steiner… and the 2016 marks a new addition to the blend. We were fortunate enough to secure a little bit of fruit from our friends, The Mansfield’s, Cardiac Hill block of Syrah. Although only 2 barrels of the entire blend, it really ratcheted up the quality of the final product — and we’re not the only ones who think so. The 2016 vintage was awarded 97 points by Antonio Galloni. This wine has something for everyone, running the full gambit from fruit to spice and savory qualities. This wine’s quality to price ratio is unmatched.
