A wonderful foil to our cooler climate Estate Vineyard, the Hudson Syrah is similarly vinified on 100% whole clusters and is treated to human-powered punchdowns - aka foot treading - during harvest. Aging in mostly used French oak barrels allows for the distinctive floral, spice and savory aromas to balance the naturally rugged and robust palate.

The 2018 Syrah Hudson Vineyard is such a great expression of this site. Inky black fruit, licorice, bacon fat, black pepper, menthol, spice, leather and game infuse the 2018 with tremendous depth. The Hudson is marked by its huge core of fruit, broad shoulders and virile personality. Bright acids and veins of supporting tannin give this brooding, potent Syrah notable energy and drive.
