Our La Serenne has been one of the most consistently awarded and acclaimed wine we make, and it is 100% from Dick's vineyard. We have rows designated to our Syrah in a spot where the soils thin out and don't produce a large crop. The grapes are small, thick skinned and loaded with flavor.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Syrah la Serenne hails from two acres within the Boushey Vineyard and was fermented with between 66% and 100% whole clusters. The wine is already very complex, wafting from the glass with notes of grilled meat, dried lavender, pepper and candied peel. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and lavish, with a layered mid-palate, fine-grained structuring tannins, sappy acids and a sapid, saline finish.

Wine EnthusiastThe aromas start out brooding, opening up to reveal notes of fresh and dried herb, smoke, dark coffee bean, iron and smoked meat, focusing mostly on the savory. The flavors are light, deft, and elegant, displaying enough structure to reward a bit of time in the cellar. Those looking for a big, bold expression of this variety and vineyard should look elsewhere. This one is all about finesse.

Wine SpectatorRefined and delicately expressive, with blueberry and smoked spice flavors that linger elegantly toward sleek tannins. Drink now through 2023. 300 cases made.
