($45; syrah planted on sea shells) Deep ruby. Crushed dark berries, smoke and minerals on the varietally accurate nose. A juicy, dry, intense and tightly wound fruit bomb, with a crushed berry character and a whiff of bitter chocolate reduction. Syrah in a rather Old World style, with an exhilarating sugar/acid balance and lovely length. Fresher than a wine with a 3.95 pH has any right to be. This vineyard was grafted over to pinot grigio after the 2004 harvest, said Schoener.

The wine is immediately rich and forward, with aromas of pulverized huckleberries and hints of smoke infused plum. The flavors are refreshingly pure and straightforward with a layered feel to the intense black and purple skinned stone fruits.
