"Inspired by the signature golden hills that frame the landscape of out San Bernabe Vineyard at the southern edge of the Santa Lucia Mountain range, Diora is the culmination of a high touch vineyard to bottle journey in California's celebrated Monterey County where San Bernabe Vineyard enjoys the 'sweet spot' of the region's long growing season, rare soils and Monterey Bay coastal influence. Powered by the precision of winermaker James Ewart's timing in the vineyard touch in the cellar, Diora dawns a statement wine style overflowing with flavor, depth and personality." - Winery Notes
Diora "Three Crowns" Red Blend 2014 Tasting Notes
"Plush, satiny and full-bodied, intense aromas of blackberries, black licorice and white pepper are punctuated by ancillary flavors of plum, blackberry and hints of leather. Featuring select Syrah fruit from our prized Block 25 as the backbone of this expressive blend, we complemented Syrah’s intensity and concentration with the soft, supple tannins of Grenache and the elegant aromatics of Viognier. The resulting blend is a perfect balance of power and finesse and an excellent showcase of San Bernabe Vineyard." - Winemaker's Notes
Blend: 88% Syrah, 7% Grenache, 4% Viognier, 1% Petite Verdot
