"There's a gently reductive edge here. An array of cassis and red plum fruits lead into a smooth, ripe and approachably soft palate. Fruit is the focus. Drink now. Screw cap."

VARIETAL: 100% Syrah

FERMENTATION: Hand-harvested fruit from primarily young vines at Domaine des Lises undergo skin contact for 4 to 5 days (1 part 100% skin contact/1 part 100% whole cluster). After several days of maceration, the wine undergoes a 20- to 30-day fermentation period including malolactic in concrete tank and large wooden tronconique vats with a degree of carbonic maceration. Aside from one or two pumpovers to homogenize or aerate, extraction is done entirely by hand with punch downs once or twice a day.

AGING: In tronconique vats.
