About the Wine

Hands down, BrakelightTM Reserve Syrah 2012 is our favorite wine that we have bottled to date.  This medium bodied syrah displays elegance with its focused cherry notes, gently integrated new French oak, cocoa, and sweet tobacco.  It pairs beautifully with lamb, grilled eggplant, and slow-roasted pork.  You will never go wrong bringing this wine to a dinner party, except for the fact that you will have to share.

The Story

Our building once housed a bakery famed for rye and an impromptu drive-thru, courtesy of the sudden two lane merge out front.  This label is a tribute to the few folks that got a little too close and personal with the building, as their brakelight never came on until it was too late.
