We planted this vineyard 20 years ago, but I still think of it as the youngster of our three ranches. It is in the mountains between Chalk Hill and Knights Valley, in country that is as much wilderness as farmland. The vineyard is named for its steeply terraced front hill, but every bit of it is extremely rugged. Soils are thin, and the blocks are planted with aspects in every direction and a variety of exposures. This environment yields small, thick-skinned grapes and dark, powerful wine. The 2013 Pyramid is an extreme of its type; while it’s big and intense every year, in 2013, the perfection of the season amplified these qualities to create an extravagant, bursting wine with incredible color and depth. The wine has a purple hue, and the aromas and flavors are blue-black: roasted meat, blackberries, blueberries, Santa Rosa plum, coffee. This is a huge, young wine that needs at least five years to mature. WINE CLUB ONLY
