2016 Desire Lines Shake Ridge Syrah


Our 2016 Shake Ridge Syrah was fermented with 50% whole cluster and aged for 14 months in neutral 500L barrels. We get fruit from two different blocks on the front of the ranch, from the first vines planted at Shake Ridge in 2003. Both blocks run from the crown of a ridge down into the colder swale, giving us a range of flavors to work with – textbook Syrah game and funk from the top, acid and fresh blue fruit flavors from the bottom. The wine is exotically perfumed with firm tannin and a sweet core of fruit that runs through the center of the wine, fitting for a wine from the foothills.
