2016 Roussanne – $30

Roussanne is golden in the glass with an aroma of Meyer lemon, honeycomb, spices and baked apple. It’s medium to full bodied with a round middle and a hint of floral notes on the finish.

2017 Aubade – $32

Fruity and floral on the nose with an exotic whiff of peach blossom, melon, honeysuckle, and vanilla. Viognier adds weight to the palate, while Picpoul blanc provides the backbone and minerality.

2016 Syrah – $34

Deep color, a smoky nose, and dark, dark fruit on the palate coupled with the added backbone of additional oak reminds us more of a northern Rhone syrah than a “new-world”,  Californian version.

2016 Nocturne – $36

71% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, and 9% Carignane. The nose is smoky and complex with plenty of dark fruit and just a hint of toasted oak. The palate is smooth and luscious with deep fruit, cloves, and chocolate. 

Forte Syrah Port (375ml) – $40

Not truly a “Port”, but made in that style, this wine carries all of the fruit and smoke of our regular Syrah wines but adds in more body, sweetness, and a little more alcohol to bring everything into balance.
