Indigo is a selection from Justin’s favourite Syrah terroir, with an emphasis on the Alban 1 clone, given an extended elevage in new, French oak barriques for maximum impact and richness.
The vineyard is situated at 335m of elevation on a north-facing, gently-rolling hillside on the foothills of Sonoma Mountain. It is composed of a geological upheaval of ashy, moondust-like soils, littered with ancient seabed.
Sonoma Mountain’s ridgetops — demarcating the cool Sonoma Coast AVA, from the more moderate Sonoma Valley AVA — delivers an utterly unique expression of Syrah, distinct from that grown elsewhere in Sonoma County.
The 2019 spent 22 months French oak hogshead barrels (90% new).
