Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Conjure an occasion for friendly conversation among friends, colleagues, or loved ones, then pair the moment with this wine. Share the intensity of blackberries, plums, and figs. Discuss the concentration and the density of fruit as boysenberries and black currants chime in at the mid-palate. This wine is firm yet expressive, Asian spices, sage, and cassis join the exchange at the margins. It’s got length on the finish, taking appropriate leave when all is said and done.
Winemaker Notes Portolan is our Winemaker Wildcard wine where we pick the most interesting Rhone varieties of the vintage and put something special together. For the 2014 vintage our Portolan is 100% Syrah from a single block of our Estate Vineyard in the El Pomar District of Paso Robles.We age this wine for 19 months in 20% new French Oak and 20% new Hungarian oak and bottle age for over a year before release.
