A heavy blackberry and cherry nose starts this spicy Syrah off, followed by a mouth of soft white pepper balanced with heavytoasted oak. Oak and earth linger on the finish. Large is the best word for this Syrah.
Pairs well with a rack of lamb, blue cheese salad or a decadent flourless chocolate cake.
Wine Enthusiast - "This winery produces a vast array of wines, yet Syrah seems to thrive best in this vineyard deep up the Santa Maria Valley. The nose is white pepper, sweet plums and rich blackberries, while the relatively light palate is all pepper and verve, with darker hints of leather, tobacco and espresso. It’s a great food wine."
