Drake Whitcraft's wines have acclaimed a cult following over the years, with particular attention to his Pinot Noirs, Syrahs, & Chardonnays. The wines carry an inherent attribute that can only be traced back to Whitcraft, an ethereal signature of Drake's true hands-off approach in his winemaking style. Mentored by Burt Williams, Drake learned "Buy good grapes, get them to the barrel and don’t mess it up." This Syrah carries airy notes of lavender, blackberries, black olives, black pepper, & wild herbs. Incredibly vibrant with a graceful body, and still packing a powerful structure one would seek in Syrah. Whitcraft wines are a true expression of the diverse terroir California has to offer, and this Syrah is no exception.
