From a beautiful, cool, perfectly-tended block in Hudson Vineyards which is situated next to an old Hangman’s tree (in use until the early 1900s) hails a distinct Syrah with a dark (and luckily not so lurid) personality. This block sits up against the southern terminus of the Mayacamas range, resulting in soils which are a combination of volcanic and old maritime soils – meaning naturally shallow, stoney, well-drained, and ideally limiting, keeping this Hermitage clone of Syrah in low production.

The 2019 Hangman’s sings with black pepper, black cherry, asphalt, frankincense, heady violets, tapenade, and pencil lead. The silky entry opens to a pure and lifted palate of carob, morello cherry, cigar box, and tar with toothsome tannins providing textural interest and driving the long finish.
