One Barrique, 50% Whole Cluster, 44 Month Élevage

From our first vintage of Syrah in 2008 we held a special barrel for an additional year of aging. The wine was hand bottled and La Sauvage was born – never to be sold, but given as special gifts for our friends and supporters. 

La Sauvage, like our other exclusive single-barrel wines, is made only in vintages that we believe are exceptional. We did not select one in 2009, nor in 2011, and only time will tell if others will be found. 

In 2010, we singled out a unique barrique with the purest aromas and structure. The wine was aged for 44 months (nearly four years) until the Beast was tamed. La Sauvage is extraordinary in complexity and depth; a great paradox of muscular aromas and silky texture. Only 200 of the 588 bottles will be released now and we will cellar the rest. Please check your allocation to acquire La Sauvage.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our Syrah comes from a sliver of a vineyard in the Bennett Valley hills. The site has a western exposure, gravelly soil and sits on the side of a small mountain. This provides excellent drainage, even sun exposure, and a cool climate. The vineyard has a breathtaking view of the Santa Rosa plain and is meticulously farmed.
