Jeff Runquist selects most of the fruit for his wines from
California's Amador County, but he thinks the best Syrah comes from Paso
Robles. So for this bottling he combines fruit from three different
growers in Paso, Steve Carter, Dan Westigard and Bob Goodwin. All three
vineyards are located in the Estrella River Plain, where the thin
soils,warm climate and cool harvest nights help tame this bold grape
variety. The resulting wine has lots of depth and concentration, with
jammy black fruits, mocha and milk chocolate and touch of hickory smoke.
Rich and creamy on the palate with well integrated tannins.

bottles on Friday and we are down to 2 cases. Once it's gone, it's
gone....Check it out here on the winery's site at $24/bottle. Swirl price is $17! No other discounts apply!!
