The second half of our single vineyard series, Some Days are Diamonds is wildly different than its brother (Some Days are Stones). Sourced entirely from Discovery Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, this wine is a laser; tight, focused and lean. It stirs memories of Northern Rhone Syrahs. Diamonds pulls in the savory notes that our Syrahs are know for along with darks fruits and a fresh acidity that makes it a perfect pairing for food.
The 2014 vintage was our 6th from this vineyard, it was a one of the warmest vintages in recent memory. This wine was fermented 50% whole cluster and using native yeasts. Aged in a combination of French oak 500lt puncheons and 225lt barrels.
