2012 Wind Gap Armagh Vineyard Syrah
The Armagh Vineyard is planted on a steep, rocky, southwestern facing slope in Chileno Valley, due west of the town of Petaluma. Facing directly into the Petaluma Wind Gap, this block of vines is a vital component of our Sonoma Coast Syrah bottling. Always the most brooding component, the 2012 is no exception, deep and tannic, showing the iron rich soil influence and the charm and balance of 2012. We culled five distinct barrels for this bottling. The remaining barrels went into our 2012 Sonoma Coast Syrah.
