Santa Barbara County
Contrary to what you might expect from the vintage, this wine is richer and more concentrated than the 2004. The lighter and heavier aspects of the various syrahs we used in this blend worked well together. We really like the aromatic lift grenache gives to syrah, so, as in 2004, we added a generous dollop of it to this blend from Roll Ranch, Bien Nacido, Verna’s, White Hawk, Thompson, Melville and Stolpman.
Blend: 100% Syrah | Alcohol: 14.0% | Vinification: 20% New French Oak | Barrel Aging: 14 Months | Total Production: 1844 cases
