These grapes are from a single vineyard, Las Madras, in the Carneros region near San Francisco Bay. Because it is so close to the Bay, the cool climate benefits Syrah. This varietal needs a location that encourages a long "hang time" - allowing flavors to come in sync with sugars- optimizing flavor development. The 2004 vintage comes from two blocks, each planted to a different French clone. The rolling hillside block is Clone 174 and the lower sloping block is Clone 300. Both are considered to be "stars" in many of the top Syrah sites in California.
