Scores & Tasting Notes

Multi-layered Syrah from the ancient soils of Northridge Vineyard. Super focused black cherry, plum and lavender run riot in the nose. The palate is not to be outdone with black molasses, velvet smoking jacket, wild mint, black crushed volcanic rock, silky tannins, vibrant energy and a persistence that continues the rediculously long finish. – Winemaker Charles Smith

99 Points – Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)

“Flirting with perfection, the 2016 Syrah The Hidden is a classic example of the old saying ”an iron fist in a velvet glove.” Beautiful notes of dark fruits, damp earth, iron, and crushed rocks as well as ground pepper all emerge from this full-bodied effort that has no hard edges, a terrific mid-palate, sweet tannins, and a finish that goes on for over a minute. It’s a brilliant, brilliant Syrah and one of the wines of the vintage.”

96+ Points – Robert Parker‘s Wine Advocate

“The nose of the 2016 Syrah The Hidden Northridge Vineyard offers a round, open-knit and voluptuous expression of dark red and black fruit characteristics—dusty plum skin, blackberry jus and cherry compote—over a wet rock minerality and savory black spices with hints of sweet oak. Full-bodied, the palate is generous but still has a rigidity to the mid-palate, with a note of bitter espresso and gripping tannic backbone. Ending with a long, spicy finish, the wine is going to go the distance and live for decades if you can just forget about it in your cellar. It will be a lucky day if you add any of the 684-case production to your cellar.”

Vineyard – Northridge

(100% Syrah)
Loamy, fine sand over silica limestone, these ancient soils above the Missoula Flood plain are some of the best to grow fruit. This site is higher elevation and has cooler evenings, which creates later ripening, lots of minerality and concentration. A hidden gem!
The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.
