Occidental Road Vineyard

Tasting Room Exclusive

Vineyard Notes
The Occidental Road Vineyard is located just outside of the town of Sebastopol on a south-west facing hillside. The vineyard is blessed with morning fog and afternoon sunshine which provides consistent light and temperatures to encourage the uniform development of grapes and the maturation of complex, cool climate Syrah.

Vintage Notes
2016 was another near perfect growing season with idyllic weather throughout the year. Given the region’s geography and typically cooler climate—due to a nightly fog layer—grapes tend to ripen slower and develop a certain characteristic acid structure while maintaining lovely and ripe red fruit flavors.

Winemaker Notes
The Occidental Road Vineyard grows a distinctive style of cool climate, later ripening Syrah which is both higher in acid and very distinctive on the palate. The nose is scented with violets and black currants. Juicy, ripe boysenberry flavors flood the palate, while hints of thyme, cacao and cracked black pepper round out the finish of this supple and elegant wine.
