Mission Briefing

Codename:

Peak Splendor

Kristof Nils Anderson’s impressive Napa Valley winemaking credentials, with time spent as the protégé of Nils Venge, shine through in this superb Northern Rhone-style Syrah from the Napa Valley’s Atlas Peak AVA. The vineyard is so steep that it’s entirely hand farmed. At 1500ft elevation, the location’s poor mountain soils, long sun exposure, and cooler nights are ideal for growing superlative Syrah. This is a rare opportunity to taste a cellared Napa Valley Syrah from a relatively unknown vineyard, made by a highly skilled winemaker. It tastes like Hermitage!
