These three Syrah's, 16' Crosswinds, 17' From Here On In, and 18' Leaving Home, showcase the unique character of this grape and how our palette has evolved over the years.

Crosswinds is deep and mysterious with a focus on finesse, From Here On In becomes lighter and full of surprises, while by 2018 Leaving Home has become earthy and invigorating, reminiscent of the lean, savoury reds of France's Northern Rhône Valley.
Each wine offering something different and showcasing the versatility of the Syrah grape. Whether you're a fan of deep, complex wines or lighter, fruitier ones, there's a Syrah here for everyone to enjoy.

Deep and dark, but never brooding. Like a big brawny weightlifter with a PhD in Art History, don’t judge this book by its cover. Mysterious yet welcoming, with flashes of toasted oak, graphite, and spicy white pepper shining through untouched forest floor. Blackberries plums, and dates dance on the palate but this is less about fruit and more a study in finesse and feel.

A sleek & stylish Syrah with a beguiling inner magnetism & seductive glint in its eye— if it were a person it would be some sort of crazy game-changing hybrid of James Bond & James Dean.

Fresh & light-bodied, yes, but juicebox-y one-note park wine this Syrah is not! This is a lighter red with a backstory, a glass of wine like a mystery to be solved: it’s like standing in front of a Jackson Pollock painting, an endless parade of new details to uncover.

Red & blue fruit flavours stroll hand-in-hand with bright green eucalyptus & swirls of spicy tobacco; classic savoury Syrah notes of crispy bacon, cigar box, & leather saddle are woken up by an electric flash of grape stem on the finish. This is a red that can pair with literally anything, even nothing: it’s a red wine drinker’s aperitif!

This earthy, crisp Syrah is as fresh and invigorating as a cool morning hike in early autumn, only way lower effort. Reminiscent of the lean, savoury reds of France’s Northern Rhône Valley.

Leaving Home kicks things off with a smoky, mineral nose like the opening guitar chord of a guttural garage rock song. This is a serious wine meant to challenge and entice, a wine meant for cool breezes, challenging flavours, and the most intense conversations.

A muscular medium body and grippy cat’s tongue tannins envelop core flavours of purple plum, dried date, and fragrant tobacco. The enduring finish highlights Syrah’s signature meatiness, calling out for a classic steak au poivre as accompaniment.
