The Zotovich vineyard is located in the cool, windswept, Sta. Rita Hills of Santa Barbara County. This is the coolest A.V.A. in SBC and produces bright, vibrant wines with beautiful concentration and elegant acidity. The grapes are hand harvested, hand sorted and fermented in a small fermentor to ensure the highest possible quality and true expression of the vineyard. This Syrah is basket pressed and aged in French oak for over twenty months prior to bottling.
