From sandstone soils on South West hillside of the San Luis Obispo (SLO) Coast, it’s a Syrah that could only be made by someone who loves Syrah. With more than a hint of the Northern Rhône, it balances classic peppery garrigue notes with a twist of blackberry acidity.

SLO Coast became an AVA in March 2022, it covers a 97km strip of cool Pacific influenced coastal benchlands, hillsides, and valleys midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Grapes come from the Bassi vineyard, located 1.2 miles from the Pacific Ocean in Avila Beach. The Syrah plantings are grown on the South West hillside, with sandstone soils.

Scar of the Sea work with work with vineyards that focus on farming, and are practicing organic as a minimum. The Bassi Vineyard is certified-organic.

The grapes were fermented whole cluster in open-top fermenters with native yeasts, before being pressed at into a manual wooden basket press once it achieved full dryness. It aged for 11 months in 100-litre neutral French oak barrels before being racked for the first time into bottle without filtration. Minimal sulphur is used.
