2010 The Conspirator's Reserve Syrah
Dove Pond Vineyard is located directly adjacent to our own in the Templeton Gap area of the Paso Robles AVA. The 18 + acre site is separated from our own by just a narrow strip of oak trees and shares the same distinctive calcareous shale and sandstone soils. Irrigation is very limited and the vines are planted north-south, taking full advantage of the warm summer growing season. The result is low yields of dense, ripe fruit. While the entire site produces top quality fruit, we were fortunate to pick from what we consider to be the optimum rows at the highest point on the predominantly flat site.
