Winegrower’s Notes
Purple is our favorite color. You know you’re drinking the good stuff when your teeth develop that unmistaken hue. Don’t worry, Chad’s father Dr. Dan Johnson D.D.S. says, “life is too short to stain your teeth on bad wine.” This vintage of our Stained Tooth® Syrah hails  from two of our estate vineyards, Stoney Vine and Southwind, as well as Breezy Slope Vineyard at the base of the Blue Mountains. The bouquet floats out of the glass and draws you into all the extraordinary fruit while the ripe tannins provide a silky finish.
