Quick Facts

This is a site specific expression of Syrah, showing the true nature of the Gabilan Mountains. It's a powerful wine, but its vibrant finish provides elegance to balance the opulent fruit and sweet tannins.

The Wine’s Story

The Gabilan Mountains are a rugged granitic and calcareous limestone based range that is hardly hospitable to any crop other than low yielding, character rich wine grapes. Big Basin’s Coastview Vineyard Syrah clearly demonstrates the enormous potential of this very special place, but also highlights winemaker Bradley Brown’s Midas touch with one of Brix Wine’s favorite varieties.
