2019 Jolie-Laide 'Halcon Vineyard' Syrah
Halcon is an extraordinary, rocky site at 2500 ft in the Yorkville Highlands. High elevation, cold coastal breezes, extreme low vigor soils and dense plantings converge to grow a enigmatic style of Syrah mostly unknown in California - Fine-boned and ethereal, but nonetheless incredibly complex
Made in the same way Jolie-Laide produces all their wines - that is; whole cluster, foot-trodden grapes, fermented with native yeasts and aged in neutral oak. Minimal inputs to highlight the phenomenal terroir. Wondering about the name? Jolie-Laide translates loosely to 'Pretty-Ugly' - a French term of endearment to describe something that is unconventionally beautiful. In the case of this wine, i would probably drop the 'unconventional' prefix and just call it 'drop-dead gorgeous'
