Gust Syrah is a distinct and exciting wine coming from two vineyard sites within the Petaluma Gap. Taking our inspiration from the Northern Rhone, the cool, long growing season of the Petaluma Gap lends itself to a wine that has power and depth while expressing a sense of place. The fruit was hand-harvested and brought into the winery where it was completely destemmed, we fermented the Syrah in closed-top fermentors, where the juice went through fermentation with native yeasts. The Syrah was then pressed off its skins after two weeks and barreled down to age. The Gust Syrah has intricate flavors of black pepper and savoriness intermingled with black and blue fruit. With ample tannin and texture, this wine has a beautiful concentration, tension, and age-ability.
