2016 Mahana

ACCLAIM

THE STORY

This is our second label to include a pop of color and the first vintage of this wine. Our Stanley Groovy is the focus of the label surveying his future vineyards with tools and plans in hand, during an orange sunrise before his first day’s work in the fields. The art is representative of the wine because the name “Mahana” pays tribute to the individual who helped found Milton-Freewater in 1889. He was described as “a visionary sort of man who wanted to do big things,” exactly the mindset we had when creating this Syrah!

TASTING NOTES

Mahana is our Rocks District AVA expression of Syrah from the Joseph Phelps clone. This wine leads with pretty purple floral notes followed by bright red fruit and cracked black pepper. This elegant and slightly savory wine is sure to please even those who aren’t necessarily Syrah fanatics.
