Syrah is the overachiever in the Santa Ynez Valley, often times without proper recognition of its beauty. Our climate and soil series are akin to producing world class wine. It comes down to the winemaking style that really allows this grape to blossom. Think of aromas of blackberry, white pepper, and crushed roses. On the palate raspberry, with secondary notes of clove and barrel spice. The wine has soft, delicate tannins, resulting from a winemaking style geared to keep the wine vivacious sans new oak.
