Roussanne | Central Coast
80% Roussanne | Adelaida District
20% Grenache Blanc | Santa Ynez
Whole cluster pressed | Barrel fermented in oak and stainless steel
Notes: Our 2016 Poise is graciously aromatic with tropical and stone fruits delivering layers of freshness. The extremely alluring nose is supported by a rich and dense mouthfeel that coats the tongue from beginning to end. Don't let the viscosity fool you, this wine has a sharp vivid streak of acidity that brings this wine to complete balance and creates an intensity on the palate that is simply explosive both chilled, and at room temperature.
Nose: Lemon, lime, pineapple, bubble gum, brioche, pear, candy apple, honeysuckle
Palate: Lemon curd, toast, pear, key lime, green apple, white peach, white tea
Syrah | Adelaida District
100% Syrah | 50% New French Oak
35% whole cluster fermentation
Notes: Our 2015 Exert Syrah is bright and alive currently showing its extreme youth. With its fresh fruit flavors and smooth round mouthfeel it displays both black and red fruit that coats the palate carrying a finish of very fine tannin with a pop of acid on the finish. This wine will benefit from another six months of bottle age but will age gracefully for another seven to ten years.
Nose: Baking spice, violets, hibiscus, cranberry, boysenberry, plum, pepper, cardamon, rhubarb
Palate: Black cherry, smoke, cola, raspberry, bittersweet chocolate, allspice
