2016 Syrah, Larner Vineyard
SANTA BARBARA COUNTY | BALLARD CANYON AVA
Sandy, limestone rich soils at Larner Vineyard produce a structured, complex Syrah. Co-fermented with a touch of Viognier and 50% whole-clusters, this wine effortlessly balances elegance and power. Floral and savory aromatics of game and olive tapenade give way to baking spice and blue and red fruit on the palate. Finishing long and grippy, this is a rich, tannic wine that will improve with cellaring 5-10 years past the vintage.
