    Winemaker's Notes:

    Using French artisan methods and hands-on vineyard management, Joe's Arcadian label consistently receives high marks from the world's most respected wine writers. Following his gut instinct allows him the complete realization of his dream and his mission remains to make wines that fully express the uniqueness of the vineyard and the region while capturing the voluptuous flavor of the grape and the kiss of cool California breezes and warm sunshine.

    This wine exemplifies the microclimate in its rustic nature with bigger tannins and earthier flavors.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ruby-red. Exotically perfumed nose features vibrant cherry and dark berry scents complicated by black olive, tobacco and smoky herbs. Tactile dark fruit preserve flavors display impressive depth and sweetness, with suave tannins adding grip. Spiciness builds on the long, juicy finish, which shuts down quickly. This needs some cellar time. 92+

    The stunningly Rhone-like 2004 Syrah Westerly Vineyard reveals a classic Northern Rhone meaty, peppery, lard-like nose with plenty of black fruit and earth notes. Medium to full-bodied and pure with a gorgeous texture, sweet tannin, and a well-balanced finish, it should drink well for 4-5 years.

    What I typically like about Santa Rita syrahs (Zaca Mesa comes to mind)is the new-world style; true to varietal but still fruit forward. this is an excellent wine but has all of the barnyard and earth/meat/tobacco nose and flavors of French syrah's
