Sinor-LaVallee White Label Bassi Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014
The Pinot Noir White Label is the yin to the yang of its riper companion from the Black Label lineup. This wine is all about exploring Bassi Vineyard through a taut, focused expression of the Pinot Noir grape. As such, it is a selection of early picks from the vintage that lock in the fruit's cool-climate character. The result is a Pinot Noir that revolves around floral, spicy, and early-season cherry qualities. Natural acidity is pronounced, delivering mouthwatering freshness across the palate.

Sinor-LaVallee San Luis Obispo County Syrah 2014Syrah was the first wine we made from Bassi Vineyard, proving to be the touchstone of a journey that ultimately led us to acquiring the property. We were blown away by the fruit's depth and symmetry, and its signatures of white pepper, lavendar and tapenade. These qualities have held true ever since. Our two Syrah blocks are planted along the eastern shoulder of the ranch, and we employ multiple picks to foster richness and dimension in the wine. This is a classic marine-climate Syrah, right on the pivot point of power and elegance.
