Fulldraw, the little brother to Vertigo, is our new wine from Assis- tant Winemaker Connor McMahon's vineyard immediately adjoining Booker. The soils are pure white calcareous shale, and getting a crop is almost impossible. Thus making it both a widely unique site as well as borderline unsustainable due to the miniscule yields of about .8 tons to the acre. As with most young vines in a site that has no vigor, the fruit you get is fresh and exciting but it is key to refrain from getting carried away and making a wine that is over the top in ripeness. The '13 Fulldraw will stand up to any GSM on the market, period. Notes of fresh blackberries and blueberries are backed with subtle hints of properly proportioned vanillin French oak. Seamless across the mid-palate and a long finish are why the critics are so high on this wine from such young vines. This wine will drink now or age gracefully for 10 years.
The inaugural vintage for the cuvee, the 2013 Fulldraw is made from 48% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 17% Mourvedre that saw roughly 40% new French oak. Coming from the younger vines on the estate, it's a rock-star effort that exhibits lots of black and blue fruits, violets, pepper and saline like minerality on both the nose and palate. Rich, full-bodied, textured and ready to go, drink this beauty over the coming 5-7 years.
