From Improbable to Exceptional

All of our best efforts: We have one aim, one shot. But, to get it right, with all that work and a welcome dose of luck, the result is a wine as eloquent as it is rare, as thrilling to make as it is to uncork.

We are excited to share Sylvie with fellow lovers of scarce, extraordinary wines.

The original: Sylvi Rintanen, Sarita Sylvi Lopez’s grandmother, dancing in the rare sunshine of her native Finland, circa 1945.

Tasting

The 2015 vintage is known for low yields of rich, concentrated fruit and this holds especially true for our organically farmed vineyard nestled in the red rock volcanic soil of eastern Oakville.

Deep garnet color and purplish black tones extend through the wine to the rim of the glass. A surprising burst of white pepper aromas quickly transitioned to make room for baking spice, clove notes and chocolate. Smooth and mouth-filling with an especially round and lush mid palate which transitions to a subtle finish that lingers. Lots of blue fruit with raspberry cordial and baked plum flavors mingle nicely with aromas of caramel, cola and a hint of resin. Clean, elegant and incredibly easy to drink now with aging potential through 2035.
