2016 Syrah, Santa Barbara County
SANTA BARBARA COUNTY
The 2016 Santa Barbara County Syrah combines fruit from the four Syrah vineyards we work with. After blending trials, Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre and Grenache were added for structure, aromatics and complexity. More than a sum of its parts, it is dark and rich. Exhibiting cherry, wild berry and violet aromatics, this wine is full and fruitful in the mouth, with underlying espresso and pepper flavors. Sharing the same farming and winemaking techniques as our vineyard designated wines, this Syrah can be enjoyed upon release or cellared for several years.
