Tasting Notes
Here’s a fruit driven, smooth handling Cadillac of a syrah, on its way to Grandma’s house.  The front seat is loaded with blueberry cobbler and cranberry-orange relish.  There are no sharp corners on this trip!

Background History
The name Helix honors our Grandparents and a family farming tradition that dates back to the late 1800’s.  Marvin and Erva Tucker met at Helix High School, fell in love, married and began farming on their own.  Our generations’s goal of building a new winery was made possible by the sale of land near Helix in 2003.  Without our Grandparents’ and our Parents’ love and support, we could not have realized our dream.
