Description

Colson Canyon Vineyard is a true mountain site with rugged hillsides and rocky soils, lying on the east side of the Santa Maria Valley in northern Santa Barbara County. These unforgiving conditions stress the vine which creates a small cluster with highly concentrated flavors. Because of this, the 2016 Colson Canyon Vineyard Syrah is dense and rich with flavors of black plum, blackberry, dark chocolate and smoked meat.

This Syrah is no shrinking violet and should be paired with foods with big flavor; think grilled New York strip, wild boar or even chili Colorado.
