2013 Santa Barbara County Syrah (Vinous: 91 pts)
This year’s Santa Barbara County Syrah is truly representative of the whole of the Santa Barbara County appellation. Sourced from vineyards from Lompoc to Happy Canyon, this blend brings together the best that Santa Barbara County’s diverse microclimates have to offer. The grapes come from five different vineyards: Camp 4, Mormann, McGinley, Tierra Alta and Colson Canyon. These diverse terroirs come together to produce a wine that is dark, velvety and structured. Look for notes of black stone fruit, blackberry and pepper to be balanced by bright, fresh notes of raspberries and juicy red plums. The wine has a solid structure and long finish. Drink this blend now or age it up to 7 years.
