Our debut vintage from the storied Hawk Hill Vineyard, which occupies a lonely hilltop high above the hamlet of Freestone on the way out to the Pacific Ocean - one of the coolest sites for growing grapes in California.
This 2012 wine represents a swan song for the Syrah block of this vineyard, as it is the last harvest of this block. Careful farming, warm days, and gentle vinification resulted in an elegant but powerful expression of the varietal.
Every year we at Bluxome produce an anomaly. Something unique that goes against our status quo. We name it "The Hounds" after a particularly rabble-rousing group of ruffians and thieves that bucked the law in San Francisco in the 19th century
