Winemaker Notes: 

"28 years ago, in 1991, we planted our south-facing hillside as a field blend of Syrah inter-planted with Viognier. We follow the old Côte Rôtie tradition of co-fermenting the two varieties, a practice that adds aroma and enhances color. We call this wine 'Axiom' (a self-evident truth) because it is such a classic expression of Russian River Syrah. 

Plentiful rain ended a four-year drought cycle. The heavier crop was hand thinned to keep the vines in balance. A frost-free spring and generally mild summer gave the 2016 vintage optimal flavor development. 

After a relatively early harvest, a three-day cold soak allowed natural enzymes to unlock flavors and aromas from the two varieties. Native yeast spontaneously began fermentation in an open-top fermenter, which we supplemented with Syrah yeast from the Rhone Valley. The wine aged sur lies for 18 months in a combination of barrels (26% new) carefully selected for their ability to enhance Axiom’s typical berry flavors while adding structure and notes of vanilla and spice."
