A record-breaking hot vintage led to an early harvest in some of the vineyards in which we source our fruit for the Sinister Hand. Our estate syrah from Outlook Vineyard came in as early as August 27th! We were excited about the heat and monitored the vineyards closely for optimal sugar levels and ripeness, finishing up harvest around the 3rd week of September. With these varying ripening dates, we found layers of complexity within each block. The heat rendered beautiful aromas of black pepper, clove and juniper with juicy hints of dried strawberry, pie cherries and fig. Flavors of chocolate, green peppercorn and boysenberry are delicious on the palate, resulting in a full-bodied, mouthcoating Rhone-styled blend.

The 2016 Sinister Hand offers up aromas of ripe berries, grilled meat, green herbs and soil. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, supple and fragrant, with a good core of juicy fruit and a finely tannic, chewy finish. It's a blend of 63% Grenache, 16% Syrah, 16% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault.

Appealing for the medium-bodied raspberry and spice flavors that finish on a zesty note. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Drink now through 2022. 5,600 cases made.
