2016 Les Galets
26 acres of the 620 acre Laetitia Vineyard are planted to Syrah in one of the coolest growing regions in the state; a mere 4 miles from the ocean. Calcareous soils and a south-facing slope combine to produce grapes that yield supple and concentrated wines.
Blackberry, mulberry, and fennel on the nose, with smoked paprika, mint, cured meats, clove, wood briquettes, capers, and creosote on the palate. The finish is long and savory, bringing applewood smoked bacon to mind. Pair with Spaghetti alla puttanesca.
