97% Syrah Clone 3 with 3% Viognier Clone 1
Only in the best vintages, Michael Larner and his family run across a single barrel of Syrah that stands apart from the rest. That special barrel is bottled separately as "Dedication" and represents the pinnacle of quality from Larner Vineyard. Because “Dedication” is not a wine that can be reproduced on a regular basis and because it represents a special moment in time, the label changes each vintage and is dedicated to a special event celebrated by the Larner family.
The 2011 vintage is dedicated to one of our majestic oaks that almost died that year from a blight plaguing California, but thanks to our organic farming and constant care survived as healthy as ever to remain a vineyard focal point.
