A luscious blend of 53% Syrah, 34% Grenache and 13% Petite Sirah, our Escondrijo (Spanish for “hideaway”),  was aged 18 months in French oak barrels, 20% of which were new.

This wine is a gorgeous dark violet in color, bursts from the glass with an exuberant nose of dried cherry, raspberry liqueur, rose petal, saddle leather, and sun-warmed ripe blackberries. The beautifully structured palate offers boysenberry, fresh-cracked black pepper, strawberry compote, graham crackers, candied orange peel, and an intriguing hint of sage and fennel, before segueing into a very long and compelling finish. 

Technical Information:

Soil Types: Linne Clay Loam - this whitish gray soil contains limestone pieces beginning 18”-24” below the surface.  The presence of limestone captures and preserves the freshness in this wine, and being a heavier soil lends itself to a rounder mouthfeel.
Santa Lucia Clay Loam - This soil lends itself to brighter, floral aromatics and lower pH.  Being a heavier soil it also lends itself to a rounder mouthfeel.

Harvest Dates: October 8th - November 8th

pH: 3.77

Bottled: April 29th, 2014
