2015 Vent De Colline, Ram’s Gate Estate

Tasting Notes

55% Syrah, 45% Grenache

Composed of Syrah and Grenache grown on the Ram’s Gate Estate, the Vent de Colline, which translates to “Windy Hill,” is a tribute to the Carneros breezes that so deeply influence our estate’s terroir. The two varieties, known for their ability to complement one another, both contribute important ingredients: from Syrah, intense tannins and peppery, meaty flavors appear; Grenache, conversely, provides vibrant acidity and bright red fruit. Strawberry, raspberry and cranberry aromas lift from the glass, quintessential characteristics of the Carneros wine region.
