DOUBLE BOND SYRAH
Larner Vineyard, Ballard Canyon California
Larner Vineyard is one of the most prized Syrah vineyards in the country.
Robert Parker has honored it by equating it to the Grand cru vineyards in France.
Our coveted fruit from this renown vineyard is the thoughtfully transformed from grape to glass with the utmost care not to adulterate all of the hard work from decades in the vineyard with modern, overpowering and masking winemaking techniques, a labor that did not go unnoticed at the largest Competition for American Wines in the World.
The 2011 was awarded Best of Class in the Syrah category at the 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition out of over 7,100 entries.
