19 Coronado Syrah
Some wines are gorgeous from the moment the fruit enters the cellar. As a winemaker, it is especially exciting when fruit from a new vineyard stands out so markedly. I will never forget the first time I stepped in this vineyard and looked down at the ground: the flat stones looked exactly like the slate floor in my living room! Syrah from slate! Amazing! This is the last year we will bottle this remarkable wine because the vineyard has sold and the new owners are using all the fruit in their own wines. So…enjoy this while you can. I know I’ll be stashing some of it in my cellar!
