Dehlinger's three-acre Estate Syrah vineyard produces the fruit for two bottlings: the Goldridge Syrah and the Altamont Syrah. Periodically, the east-facing portion of the vineyard is bottled separately as East Face Syrah. This high ridge of drier soil is less vigorous and produces the most concentrated wine.

All of our Syrahs age in 132 gallon French oak puncheons. Twice the volume of a standard barrel, these casks permit a longer, slower maturation and a more delicate oak profile that showcases the varietal power of our wines.
