About the Wine
The 2019 FOCUS expresses the now world-famous potential of Paso Robles to produce the highest quality New World Syrah. For this vintage, we selected the best of the best syrah fruit of the vintage and released only a few hundred cases of this remarkable wine that showcases our ability to craft exceptional wines in a variety of styles.

Full-bodied, with black berry fruit, red cherry accents, and vanilla on entry, with a markedly savory mid-palate with dried herbs, cracked pepper, leather, smoky oak, and mouth filling, chewy tannins through a long, fresh finish showing lingering black and red fruit, sweet and savory spice with oak and some meaty notes.
