2016 Syrah, Tierra Alta Vineyard

The Syrah grapes came from a very steep hillside block of Clone 1 planted in shallow calcareous soils.  Located in the Ballard Canyon of Santa Barbara County with a cool marine influence and long, cool growing season these grapes possessed excellent purity and depth while the vineyard produced a meager 2.3 tons per acre crop with excellent concentration. Jeb Dunnuck praised the 2015 vintage saying, “It has a rocking bouquet of sweet black and blue fruits, vanilla bean, crushed flowers, and hints of cured meats. This ripe, sexy, full-bodied beauty has a stacked mid-palate, sweet tannins, and a great finish, and while it's rich Syrah, it has an undeniable elegance and purity. Give it a year or two and enjoy bottles over the coming decade.” 95 points
