 This vineyard, which was originally The Harrison Clarke Vineyard, was sold a few years back and is now called Piazza Bella.

I refused to call it by the new name, so on the label it’s called Ballard Canyon Syrah.

It’s an exceptional site, located just above Stolpman vineyard, and has a very defined limestone vein running through the property. While walking through parts of the vineyard, the ground is so light, white and fluffy, you’d think you were on the moon because the limestone is the top soil. The wine was fermented 100% whole cluster, but the grapes were worked - meaning pumped over and punched down. Farmed by none other than Stolpman Vineyard Manager, Ruben Solorzano himself - the result of the beautiful fruit is a very concentrated wine that is wonderfully aromatic and bright
