Let’s age some Syrah in Acacia and see what happens. Turns out that Acacia wood is very tannic wood compared to Oak, and Syrah 100% whole-cluster is also very tannic.

Quick Facts: RockWell is a blend of different single lot red and white wines from the cellar. The 2015 vintage marks the first release for this wine. With one exception being the SM2, every wine we produce is a single varietal wine. As much as we love to do that, there is much more fun to be had making elaborately blended, impossible combinations of grapes that come together to make something representative of nothing we normally revere in wine such as terroir, typicity, and tradition. This is a cuvee dedicated to the kid in all of us, and a reflection of our interest to make wine something it rarely seems to be...... FUN!
