2020 SYRAH
Coastview Vineyard
Sans Soufre


Coastview Vineyard, situated on a ridgetop 2,300 feet up the Gabilan Mountains, is one of the most dramatically beautiful sites on the Central Coast. Here, thin soils of decomposed granite with veins of limestone are planted to chardonnay, pinot noir, grenache, and of course syrah. Organically farmed.

Granite has proven itself as one of the greatest soils for syrah, from the slopes of southern Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage, to Saint-Joseph and Cornas. This wine is an homage to some of the great sans soufre (no added sulfur) wines of Balthazar and Allemand in Cornas. Similar to these classic examples, the ’20 SLS Coastview Syrah is immediately pleasureable and elegantly structured, while the wild and rustic sauvage character will certainly develop with time.

Dark purple and and medium-full bodied. Brambleberry, graphite, and smoked meat dominate the nose, while crème de violette and black fruits follow on the palate.
