Named after Guillaume & Solene's son born in 2012. It comes from a cooler area in Santa Maria Valley to make this wine a little more like France's cool climate Syrah and inspired by Cote Rôtie. Similar to the Hommage à nos Pairs it was also co-fermented with Viognier, fermented with stem, the texture of this wine is outstanding that will age for more than a decade. This wine displays a brightness with broader tannins and much more pepper spices.
