95Wine Enthusiast

Dense and focused on the nose...aromas of elderberry, cola, wisteria and jasmine...flower elements extend to the palate...crushed boysenberry, candied violets and black-pepper flavors...savory elements, all wrapped in purple flowers.

95Jeb Dunnuck

Blackberries, ground pepper, bacon fat, and an undeniably minerality all emerge from this beauty. It's deep, has classic Syrah aromas and flavor, building tannins, and a great finish.

93+ The Wine Advocate

...bouquet of cassis, smoky plums, grilled meat and licorice. On the palate, it's full-bodied, very powerful and concentrated...

93Vinous / IWC

...powerful, dense and plush... Super-ripe blue and black fruit, chocolate, licorice and sweet spice are all pushed forward...pretty wine...


United States, California, South Coast, Santa Barbara County, Ballard Canyon

Santa Barbara County is not an AVA, but a region just south of San Luis Obispo that includes the Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley appellations. Wine has been produced in the area since the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted vineyards. It wasn’t until the 1990s, however, that producers focused on growing premier grapes for fine wines. During the 1990s more than 10,000 acres of vineyards were planted, and today there are nearly 20,000 acres of vineyards. The region received a big bump in recognition and prestige when the popular film “Sideways” was shot there in 2004. Because the region is affected by maritime weather, it is relatively cool climate makes it ideal for Chardonnay. Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and an increasingly adventuresome number of varietals are also grown successfully in Santa Barbara County.


Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
