Description

"...powerful and bold, with expressive savory and peppery notes that add striking shades of complexity. This is an especially rich, racy style. A touch of sweetness from American oak is a lovely accent to ripe dark cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice and grilled herb flavors." Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Deep ruby-purple and scented of white pepper, menthol and turned earth with cedar and ripe black fruits, the 2017 Syrah Santa Barbara County is full-bodied and fills the mouth with juicy black fruits, framed by firm, slightly chewy tannins and just enough freshness." ~ Wine Advocate 

Blackberry, blueberry, red plum scents jump from the glass followed by smoke, dried tobacco and white pepper. You won't miss dark fruit flavors of black cherry, plum and blackberry with dried herbs, dark chocolate and smoked meat rounding out the palate.
