Winery Notes:

Once again for the 2017 vintage of Akasha, we have selected barrels from vineyards in the cooler pockets of  West Paso Robles as well as Bien Nacido Vineyards in Santa Barbara County. These cooler sites really shine 

in warm vintages like 2017 contributing beautiful characteristics of blue and black fruits, olive tapenade, and  savory layers of game and spice. Each lot is fermented separately is small open tops utilizing only indigenous yeast. Small percentages of the grapes are fermented 100% whole cluster and blended with destemmed portions prior to bottling. Upon completion of fermentation lots are gently basket pressed. Aging takes place on lees in 300L French Oak barrels of which roughly 60 percent are new and the balance once used for 22 months. The wine is then blended and bottled unfined and unfiltered and aged for an 
additional 14 months prior to release. With some time in a decanter, this wines is stunning in its youth but certainly comes into its own with a couple of additional years in the cellar. Age this with confidence for 10+ years.

The 2017 Akasha comes from Bien Nacido and Shadow Canyon and is another pure, concentrated Syrah from this terrific estate. Cassis, black raspberries, blueberries, charred meats, chocolate, and hints of salty minerality all give way to a full-bodied, ripe, pure Syrah that has ultra-fine tannins, no hard edges, and a huge finish.
