    Winemaker's Notes:

    #27 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

    81% Syrah, 8% Petite Sirah, 11% Grenache.

    The Syrah varietal is Santa Barbara County's great noble red. This bottling is abundant with suggestions of blackberry, blueberry, and hints of vanilla. Its silky texture carries ripe fruit and tannins on the palate.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Complex and layered, offering a firm core of dried berry, mineral, cedar and sage, with dashes of pepper and spice. Full-bodied, sleek and focused, ending with a touch of creamy oak. Drink now through 2010.

    Wine Spectator

    The outstanding 2008 Syrah Santa Barbara exhibits mineral-laced, dark raspberry, kirsch, and blacker fruit characteristics, a velvety texture, medium to full body, and an elegant, soft, seductive personality. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
