The 3rd vintage of our Rockpile Syrah "collab" with my dear friend and fellow vintner Yves Cuilleron of the Northern Rhône.

The saying "third time's a charm," is exactly what this wine has turned out to be.  Each year I feel Yves and I keep fine tuning what we want to achieve with this block of fruit. Each year I see a wine with more freshness and sense of place.

Why This Wine?

It is the oldest block of Syrah at Rockpile (RP) Vineyard. After making this Syrah for many years as the 'Haley' bottling, I decided to try a new project. This time, I wanted to work with another of my winemaking heroes, Yves Cuilleron of Côte-Rôtie. I met Yves in 1998 at Hospice du Rhône in Paso Robles. Yves and I wanted to take this Syrah in a different direction than what I had been making, so we did.

The original budwood came directly from Hermitage in the northern Rhône and was planted soon after. To really appreciate how different Domaine des Chirats is from the other RP Syrahs I make, you really need to taste them side-by-side. I also encourage you try it alongside a bottle of Yves Cuilleron Côte-Rôtie to see how our two styles come together.

Domaine des Chirats is translated in old French to "home of the pile of rocks". What a fitting name for this special wine.

Vineyard Information

At 2010 ft. elevation, our vineyard sites that we source from are rocky, and stressed. This gives me amazing fruit to make our Rockpile Vineyard Syrahs.
