From an epic vintage that saw excellent results across Santa Barbara, the 2014 Syrah is a generous wine with ample depth and complexity that is showing beautifully this moment in time. Dark fruit layers with blackberry confit are stacked tall with cured tobacco and exotic spice. This wine is smooth and silky to the palate with softly integrated tannins and a polished finish. *Library selection* Aged 22 months in 33% new French oak and 8% new American oak.
Aromas of a dark fruit medley, candied smoked bacon, pepper spice, and charred earth. Hints of leather, cedar and chalk create a rich mid-palate, yet nicely textured with a smooth finish. Aged 22 month in 40% New French oak and 20% Russian oak. Pairs well with grilled or smoked meats.
