Our Syrah grapes are meticulously cultivated in the Moon Mountain District AVA of Sonoma County, where our vineyard sits majestically on the rugged slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains. Nestled in a sun-drenched western exposure, our small vineyard blocks benefit from the unique terroir, sharing the distinctive red, iron-rich volcanic soils with our esteemed neighbor, the historic Monte Rosso Vineyard. Our specific plot, known as Mooncrest Vineyard, spans a portion of our 100-acre estate, strategically planted to maximize each varietal's potential. The Syrah vines thrive in a designated area known as Lunar Ridge, situated in a cool, southwest-facing hollow that ensures optimal sun exposure and balanced ripening conditions.

About the 2021 Moon Mountain Syrah:
The 2021 growing season blessed us with near-perfect conditions for our Syrah grapes, allowing for gradual ripening and optimal flavor development. This Syrah reveals its character from the moment it pours into the glass, with inviting aromas of blackberry compote and subtle hints of smoked meats. Swirling reveals nuances of violet and cracked pepper, hinting at the wine’s depth. On the palate, it unfolds with layers of dark fruit, complemented by flavors of espresso and a touch of dark chocolate. The texture is velvety yet structured, with fine-grained tannins that provide a lingering, smooth finish. This is a wine that showcases the richness and complexity of our Moon Mountain terroir, promising enjoyment now and for years to come.
