Hommage à nos Pairs Reserve
- 95% Syrah, 2% Grenache, 3% Viognier
In homage to those who have taught me, inspired me, and believed in me. Our reserve Syrah started 9 years ago. Grown mostly in the Willow creek district in Paso Robles, we cherry pick all the best barrels for this co-fermented blend coming from different vineyards we care throughout the season, we only made 10 barrels. This 2017 vintage aged in 50% new oak in 320l barrels for 21 months. Very elegant on the front palate, the wine is superb. Balanced and delicate with beautiful tannins, that will age for two decades.
The optimum cellaring approach the 15 years on the 2017. Ideal to open after 3 years with a decanting of 6 hours minimum at ideal temperature of 58F.
