2017 'Monarch Vineyard' Syrah
Nesting Place: Monarch Vineyards
Nestled in the majesty & wonder of the East Osoyoos Bench, Monarch vineyard produces iconic & noteworthy incarnations of red-wine. This site lays on the lower plateau/Osoyoos Bench flats, while not technically recognized as a distinguished sub-appellation, Monarch is worthy of its royal reference in moniker. Planted to Cab. Sauv, Cab. Franc & Syrah & defined by rich, Sand based soil. Our relationship here runs as deep, if not deeper than the soil its self. Regardless of vintage, the site absolutely bakes in the desert sun, breeding brooding/seriously meaty expressions of fruit.
