Piedrasassi Arroyo Grande Valley Rim Rock Vineyard Syrah 2012

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The Rim Rock Vineyard is 7 miles from the ocean, with 35 year old own-rooted vitis vinifera. The Chamise soils there are the exact opposite of limestone: very acidic. The flavor profile is very much like that of Cornas: graceful and well-suited to 100% whole cluster fermentation.

Wine AdvocateEven better, the 2012 Syrah Rim Rock Vineyard comes from a small 3-acre plot and was fermented with 100% whole clusters. It offers up thrilling notes of black raspberry, rose petal, pepper and distinct saltiness to go with a medium-bodied, elegant and finesse-driven palate feel. While it has bright acidity, it also has solid concentration and a seamless texture. It too should drink nicely for 6-8 years.
