Vineyards and Composition: 100% Fox Family Vineyard Syrah; Los Olivos, Santa Barbara County.

Barrel Aging and Cooperage: Twenty-six months in two and three year old French oak barrels (Sirugue and Meyrieux).

Winemaking: The Syrah grapes for this wine are grown on a steep, high-density planting on a rocky hillside of the Fox Family Vineyard in the hills of Los Olivos.  This tiny vineyard is planted to the Syrah clones 470 and 383, originally sourced from the Northern Rhone Valley of France, and farmed entirely by hand.  These grapes are hand harvested early in the morning while cold, hand sorted, partially destemmed without being crushed, leaving approximately 90% whole berries and 15% whole-cluster, into two 1 ton open top fermentors. The must was cold-soaked for five days, with the addition of dry-ice, prior to inoculation and punched down by hand one to three times per day until fermentation was complete.  The free run juice was drained off and the remaining must was basket pressed and settled before being racked to French oak barrels for aging.  This wine was aged in barrel for twenty-six months prior to being racked from barrel and bottled in late January of 2018.
