750mL / 14.4% ABV

Winestyr Review

This Syrah-based blend has wonderful sophistication and complexity - which seems to be the hallmark of Guyomar's wines. Bright fruit and firm tannins lead to beautiful undertones of smoke, leather, oak, and pepper. This is powerful wine with finesse and manners. 46% Syrah, 28% Petite Sirah, 17% Zinfandel, 9% Grenache.

What We Love

  • Smoky and mysterious
  • Newly established Templeton Gap AVA in Paso Robles

This is a great wine for Syrah lovers - lay it down in the cellar or decant for at least an hour

Experience

The property that would eventually become St. Peter of Alcantara Vineyard, Guyomar’s estate vineyard, is located in the western part of Paso Robles AVA, known as the Templeton Gap. St. Peter of Alcantara benefits from ocean influence; the afternoon winds that cool the region during the growing season, as well as the increased rainfall that benefits the westside of Paso Robles. The St. Peter of Alcantara Vineyard is farmed on the philosophy that dry farming is king; that one should grow quality fruit with the least amount of water input as possible, to produce fruit with great character and depth. Because of its unique growing conditions along with meticulous vineyard practices, St. Peter of Alcantara Vineyard is blessed to have never required irrigation.
