Rockpile is such a special place for Syrah. At 2010 ft. elevation our Syrah is grown above the fog line allowing for plenty of sun to reach full ripeness. Each offers a distinctly different character but they all have a beautiful minerality produced by the vineyard and the yeast that Jeff isolated from the vineyards that is now used commercially all over the world.
Our flagship 100% Syrah with dark fruit and minerality. Syrah at high elevations and rocky soil is a "Match Made in Heaven."
