For when you gather that wine-loving group of friends together and you want the most interesting bottle there. The 2017 vintage was one for the ages. Mother Nature threw us a curveball, but we were able to able to adapt.

Tasting Notes
This wine is aromatically bold and complex, deep purple in color and rich in texture. With this wine, patience is a virtue. Give it time and you will be treated to layers of aromas and flavors that unfold before you. A bouquet of blackberries, cassis, spice and white pepper overflow the glass, followed by hints of vanilla brought out by the barrel aging. The mouthfeel is round and soft with dark chocolate, bacon, and toasted oak attributes complementing the dark fruit. The lengthy finish which highlights acidity and velvety tannins is the perfect finale for this complex wine.
Vineyard Notes
There were early rains, a mild spring and some heatwaves in September. This was followed by cooler weather, bringing back a bit of normalcy to the growing season. At our Destin Vineyard, the Estate Syrah flourished, and we were once again, blessed with a bountiful and beautiful crop.

Winemaker Notes
“Syrah may be my favorite varietal to make and enjoy. It’s the epitome of terroir. And it thrives in nearly every landscape upon which is planted. Consisting of Clones #877 and #4, our Destin Syrah shows classic varietal rusticity and big red fruit, power, restrain, and great length. A kiss of 60% new French oak for 22 months is just perfect to balance and cradle the plethora of savory flavors.” - Kirk Venge, Winemaker
