RATINGS

94The Wine Advocate

At this stage, the aromas and flavors are very much primary. It is the wine's textural elegance and layered personality that impress above all else.

94Vinous / IWC

Explosively aromatic bouquet evokes dark berry preserves and pungent flowers, along with allspice and star anise.

92Wine Spectator

Dark and condensed, with a rich, focused core of supple-textured mineral and fresh earth-laced blackberry and wild berry flavors.

REGION

United States, California, South Coast, Santa Barbara County, Santa Ynez Valley

Santa Ynez Valley AVA is home to more wineries than any other area in Santa Barbara County. The appellation was established in 1983 and it includes a total of 76,800 acres, of which 1,500 acres are vineyards. Chardonnay is the dominant grape in this appellation, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Pinot Noir, and Merlot. The appellation runs east and west with temperatures and microclimates changing significantly from warmer in the east to cool by the time the district gets close to the Pacific Ocean. In recent years Rhone-style wines have been successfully made here, and vineyards now are also planted to Syrah, Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache, Mourvedre and Marsanne.

TYPE

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.
