2018 Shadow Canyon

2018 Shadow Canyon

Situated at 1,600’ elevation, a mere 8 miles from the ocean, Shadow Canyon is one of only a few vineyards in the York Mountain AVA. The warm days yield to cool nights allowing for a long growing season, ideal ripening and savory, smoky Grenache and Syrah.

VINIFICATION

25% whole cluster fermented in small, open top bins, spending 20 days on skins, with a combination of pump-overs and punch-downs during cold soak and fermentation. Aged 20 months in 100% new 265-liter barriques.

TASTING NOTES

Aromatics: smoked meat, herb cured olives, incense, ocean breeze, black raspberry, cigar smoke, and sweet blueberries.  Palate:  Dark berry, sweet country ham, smokehouse, saline, and rich cassis. The finish is spicy, floral, and briny with well-structured tannin built for the long haul.
