2013 Yountville Syrah, Grigsby Vineyard
The twenty-one acre Grigsby Vineyard is located just minutes from the Cornerstone Cellars tasting room in Yountville at the northwest corner of the intersection of the Yountville Cross Road and the Silverado Trail. Of those acres, just two and a half are Syrah. From these few vines comes our first wine from the Yountville AVA and our first White Label wine from a Rhône variety. While it the Yountville AVA, the Grigsby Vineyard is literally just across the street from the Stag’s Leap AVA and to us shares more in common with that AVA than Yountville. This rich, powerful and dramatic 100% Syrah should be paired with the biggest steaks you can find in its youth, but with age will become even more layered and complex.
