2017 Syrah, Zotovich Vineyard
95 Points from Anotnio Galloni - "the 2017 Syrah Zotovich Vineyard is a gorgeous wine that beautifully captures the essence of this sandy site in its lifted aromatics and mid-weight structure. Black pepper, mint, licorice, lavender and spice add striking character. Most of Blair Fox's Syrahs are pretty big wines, but the Zotovich is a wine that focuses more on elegance and balance. Savory inflections are nicely woven into the wine's fabric." Drink from 2022-2032
93 Points from Jeb Dunnuck - "From a cool site in the Sta. Rita Hills, the 2017 Zotovich Vineyard Syrah reveals a deep purple color as well as cool-climate notes of black fruits, peppered game, smoked meat, and earth. It's medium to full-bodies, with juicy acidity, good overall ripeness, and again, this fresh, cool-climate style that's reminiscent of a top Saint Joseph."
