Consistently celebrated with 90+ point ratings from the likes of Jeb Dunnuck, Vinous.com, and The Wine Enthusiast, this wine is a testament to its pedigree and the prestige of its origins. Sourced from the increasingly renowned Ballard Canyon microclimate, it benefits from the expertise of a seasoned winemaking team whose roots trace back to the 90s. The vineyard's southward orientation proves ideal for nurturing the Syrah grape to its full potential.

For aficionados of the Rhône Ranger style, here's a delightful embodiment of the grape, originating from a hidden gem within the Santa Ynez Valley. This wine entices with a bouquet that melds blackberry with cassis, delicately intertwined with hints of licorice and violet. On tasting, a symphony of flavors unfolds: from meaty dried fruit to blackberry-peppercorn compote, all punctuated with undertones of cocoa nibs. The medium+ acidity and crushed velvet tannin texture promise a rich experience. The finish, although hinting at further depths with age, already impresses with its length and intricacy. The judicious use of oak amplifies the fruit's character rather than overshadowing it, resulting in a wine that is both sensual and elegantly composed.
