Santa Barbara County
Wow, I don’t think I’ve tasted this wine for a year, and it is good! With aromas of tar and toast, it reminds me of one of my favorite southern Rhone wines. Dense, flavorful and, like our 2003 version, something altogether different than our other syrahs. The freshness and peculiarity that the wine displays is entirely the product of this unique vineyard site in Santa Barbara County’s Cat Canyon, near the little town of Los Alamos.
