A gorgeous drink-now red blend from our estate! All the fruit that goes into our crowd-pleasing Syrah blend grows at the bottoms of our incredibly steep hillsides, thus, ‘Downslope.’ What does that mean? On Alta Colina Vineyard, lower altitude vines have more topsoil to work with thanks to erosion. As it turns out plants loooove dirt! So, those vines growing in more topsoil are less stressed and produce more fruit. Slightly higher yields allow real bang for the buck while still presenting some beautiful depth and color. Less ageable than the rest of our red wines, Downslope is the perfect drink-now red.
