For Quinn.

“When Quinn the Eskimo gets here, everybody’s gonna jump for joy”- Bob Dylan.  This 100% Syrah is named for my brother Quinn who, like the Dylan song, is an enigmatic, storied man. He’s a winemaker in his own right; working harvests in New Zealand, Australia and California.The Bassetti Vineyard in Cambria is a dry farmed coastal vineyard that works hard to produce some of the area’s most distinct fruit. “You ain’t seen nothing like the mighty Quinn.”
