2016 Syrah, Bien Nacido Vineyard
SANTA BARBARA COUNTY | SANTA MARIA VALLEY AVA
Bien Nacido Vineyard gave us exceptional fruit in 2016. Moderate, consistent temperatures provided balance in the fruit as well as optimal ripeness. The resulting wine shows dark fruit aromatics, supported by anise and white pepper. Plum and wild berry integrate with Northern Rhône Syrah characteristics of cassis, tar, graphite and white pepper. This is a complex, bold wine that has a history of aging magnificently for up to 15 years and longer.
