Tasting Notes

This is a big, dark brooding Syrah with aromas of blueberries, char-grilled game meats, freshly ground coffee, and bacon fat. There is a delicate integration of toasted oak notes with a palate that is distinctively powerful while maintaining a concentrated mouthfeel. Per­sistent acidity adds a lovely lengthiness that begs to be aged. This beauty will be best enjoyed in 2021 and will continue to evolve well into 2030.

Vineyard Notes

We have been making wine from Chamisal Vineyard for more than forty years and, in that time, have developed an intimate knowledge of our terroir down to the blocks and rows that make up our estate. This bottling comes from sites that we consider to be our “Grand Vin” sections of the vineyard with optimal soils and clonal selections. “Califa” is the name we have bestowed on these stunning wines to distinguish them as outstanding expressions of some of our most treasured sites. Our Califa Syrah has gained a reputation for being an outstanding, intense and age-worthy wine.
