95% Syrah / 5% Viognier, co-fermented
Knights Valley, Sonoma County
Floral aromatics added by Viognier co-fermentation compliment the smooth structure and great acid-driven length of this wine. Collective Efforts 2017 is elegant and bursting with beautiful aromas. 2017 was a vintage marked by drought-ending winter rains, rapid spring growth, several heat spikes, and an insane fire season. The Lawer Vineyard managed to negotiate these parameters exceptionally well and produced our most elegant Syrah yet. This wine will age gracefully for many years.
