Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Like a free flowing jazz trio, this lively GSM blend hits the notes just right. Exemplifying structure, depth, and body, the Sextant Wines Passage has become a hallmark for the region. It’s clean and crafted from New World techniques but never too far from Old World traditions. Cloves, bramble, and nutmeg notes combine with raspberry, strawberry, and cassis. The tannins are supple while bright acidity accentuates the tune. The finish is well composed, a persistent sensory experience.
Winemaker Notes Passage is our Syrah based GSM blend. For the 2013 vintage it is 59% Syrah, 21% Mourvedre, 16% Petite Sirah, 4% Grenache. We age this wine for 19 months in 20% new French Oak and 20% new American oak and bottle age for over a year before release. 100% sourced from our Estate Vineyard.
