Qué Séra, Séra...This dark berry flavor Syrah will catch you off guard!This is one not to miss!
This winery was the first to plant Syrah in Santa Barbara County and continues to produce exceptional wines with great value.
This Syrah shows off very rich blackberry, cassis, espresso, mocha and the mid palate offers up sage and Asian five-spice. The silky finish is persistent coming from the ripe tannins and smoky oak. This full-bodied wine would pair well with a rack of lamb, other grilled meats and along with bold cheeses. It is a great wine showing classic Syrah at such a great price!
Wine Enthusiast, M.K., 92 Pts, Feb. 2015:
"The first winery to plant Syrah in the county continues to produce powerful but layered expressions. This delivers rich aromas of cherry, stewed plum and blackberry alongside sage and a wisp of vanilla. On the palate, it starts rich, until bright acidity and tannins bring balance amidst mocha and blackberry jam flavors and an oak-powered vanilla finish."
"Our wines are made from sustainably farmed grapes that are 100 percent estate grown, produced and bottled. With over 40 years of grape growing experience in the Santa Ynez Valley, our winemaking and vineyard teams meticulously farm our vineyard to focus on terroir-driven wines. We began growing Rh̫ne varieties in 1978 when we were the first to plant Syrah in Santa Barbara County. Since then, we have determined that varietals planted in the Rh̫ne Valley of France are best suited to our estate. After hand harvesting, the Syrah and Viognier grapes were placed into small open-top bins to co-ferment. During fermentation, grape skins were punched down twice a day resulting in a wine of intense color, rich flavors and fine tannins. The wine was then placed into French oak barrels for 16 months to age."
