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.
The Serine selection of Syrah produces our most coveted Rockpile Syrah.

I'm sorry this wine is sold out.
Focused on brandied black cherries with savory notes, hints of lavender and mineral back bone, a true experience in terroir for sure.

This is a full-bodied wine for sure, but with great tension, that delivers freshness and vibrancy to this elegant wine. The palate is focused on black and red fruits, savory notes, floral and crush rocks.

From the black fruits, roasted earth notes, sweet creamy vanilla bean and brooding blackberry.
