Tower 15, 2018 Syrah
Our Tower 15, 2018 Syrah carries the traditional profile–a rich, powerful, and sometimes meaty red wine that originated in the Rhône Valley of France. Our vineyard-designate Syrahs have characteristcs of fleshy, ripe fruits bound by a defined tannin structure. This particular vintage contains grapes sourced from Jorian Hill Vineyard, located in the Ballard Canyon AVA in the Santa Ynez Valley region. Our Syrah is fermented in small lots, punched-down by hand up to three times each day, and aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, using 35% new French and American oak. The majority of our Grenache was added to our 'Jetty' blend, leaving only a limited amount for this single varietal bottling.
