2014 Pugsley

PUGSLEY2014 Atlas Peak,  NAPA VALLEY
SYRAH

Our estate grown Syrah is named after our demanding and mischievous rescue pug.

Our Syrah vines thrive in our rocky, volcanic soil.

Rating it 90-92+, Robert Parker describes Pugsley as showing "an inky/purple color, loads of crushed/powdered stone and floral notes, but also copious quantities of blackberry and blueberry fruit.  It is a deep, rich, full-bodied and multidimensional wine that should drink well for 10-15 years."

The second vintage of Pugsley has been crafted exclusively from Syrah grown on our estate on Atlas Peak in Napa Valley. Like its' namesake this wine is one of a kind and will leave you with a perpetual grin.

90-92+ - Robert Parker, Jr.: The Wine Advocate, #228 - 12-30-16

Another mineral-dominated Syrah from Atlas Peak, the 2014 Syrah Pugsley shows an inky/purple color, loads of crushed/powdered stone and floral notes, but also copious quantities of blackberry and blueberry fruit.

It is a deep, rich, full-bodied and multidimensional wine that should drink well for 10-15 years. It ideally needs several years of bottle age to round into form.


Pugsley Wine Information

Pugsley is our signature Atlas Peak Syrah.

The 2014 vintage is crafted from grapes grown on our estate on Atlas Peak.

Syrah from Atlas Peak is particularly evocative of the rocky volcanic soil, which predominates our vineyards.  

As such, it has a pleasing minerality; coupled with luscious fruit characteristics of blackberry and blueberry.

Named after our mischievous rescue Pug, Malbec, this wine is one of a kind; and full of spice and spunk.

The 2014 vintage is rated 90-92+ by Robert Parker.
