Halcon VineyardMyriad Cellars Halcon Vineyard Syrah
Located in the Mendocino appellation of the Yorkville highlands, this is our highest elevation and most northerly vineyard in the Myriad profile. Sitting above the fog line, the night time and early morning temperatures are warmer than the valley below. This smaller diurnal swing provides longer slower ripening and increased complexities. Grown on geologic band of rare soil composed of fractured shale, mica-schist and quartz rich rock, its northly location, ocean exposure, altitude and soil composition combine to produce a climate remarkably similar to the Northern Rhone region of France.
