2005 Syrah Santa Barbara County

« Back to Shop

While the single vineyard designate Syrahs tend to highlight the individual characteristics of a particular vineyard or microclimate, the Santa Barbara County Syrah is proud to be the good will ambassador representing all that is good about Syrah from this area.  As a careful blend comprised of several great local vineyards, this is one of the most well rounded representations of the depth, juicy dark berry flavors, and chocolaty tannins that can be achieved with the synergy of multiple vineyards. I's the warm, comfortable friend you can come home to any night of the week. Or every night of the week. It always likes you, unconditionally.

Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate
June 2008

"The generic 2005 Syrah Santa Barbara possesses a fat, fleshy personality that is very much in keeping with the estate's signature. Its dense purple hue is accompanied by copious quantities of black fruits interwoven with hints of new oak and char. While mouthfilling, it does not display the complexity of the top efforts. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."
