75% Syrah, 13% Petit Verdot, 12% Petite Sirah
With the story behind Beyond Category and the mystique of its varietal composition each vintage, this wine is one of the most anticipated each release. Every year, we have the freedom to take the best representations of vintage and the intrinsic qualities of incredible fruit grown at high elevation in steep, limestone-rich soils. Out of the gate, this wine is amorous and pure; black fruits intertwined with violets, sweet pipe tobacco and a striking blueberry cobbler supported beautifully with a seamless palate weight. The brighter floral notes create a slight lift and freshness to add to the fine, chocolate-like tannins shedding light on a focused wine that can be enjoyed over the next 7-10 years.
