2011 Syrah Zayante Vineyard
Santa Cruz Mountains
In The Glass - Blackberries on the vine, new leather and pepper On the Palate - The fruit dominates with blackberry and plum, with the spicy essence of Red Hots. The finish: Stone minerality, herbs and roses from the garden, mouth watering acidity and smooth tannins.

The Vines We consider Zayante Vineyard one of our most treasured partnerships. Greg Nolton is a very skilled farmer. His vines are dry farmed and everything is organic. Greg grows his vines using old world methods that many modern day vintners may frown upon, but for us it is magic. The wines come out so expressive of his site that it is quite stunning, and the dry farming leads to an unparalleled intensity.
