Cardiac Hill Syrah 2015
Cardiac Hill runs on a very steep hillside at an elevation ranging from 500 to 900 feet hence the peculiar but appropriate name.
Cardiac Hill runs on a very steep hillside at an elevation ranging from 500 to 900 feet hence the peculiar but appropriate name. It is situated in the southeast corner of the Bennett Valley, where three mountain peaks at the northern end of the Petaluma Wind Gap create a unique Sonoma County micro-climate. The Valley’s benchland soils formed from the volcanic ash of Taylor Mountain, Sonoma Mountain and Bennett Ridge, combined with the unusually cool climate, create one of Sonoma County’s most expressive Syrah growing regions.
100% Whole cluster syrah aged in neutral French barrique
Playful and delicious with lots of Cinnamon, purple flowers, blue fruit and an intense carbonic pop that makes for a very lively and extremely textured Syrah, with mouth-watering acidity.

Vinous Media - "Wilde Farm's 2015 Syrah Jemrose Vineyard Cardiac Hill is a very pretty wine. The addition of co-fermented Viognier and the whole clusters give the wine its distinctive savory, layered personality. Soft and open-knit, with plenty of early appeal, the 2015 is an impeccably balanced wine to drink now and over the next few years. Bright, red-toned fruit and floral overtones reappear on the finish."

While the average California grower expects yields of 20 pounds of fruit per vine, Alder Spring produce just 2 ½. Just enough for a single, spectacular bottle! The mouth-feel is light and billowy with a streak of concentrated apple laced fruit; honeyed fig and mineral laden length that reveals a concentration & intensity that bode well for the future.
