Bridlewood Estate Winery Syrah Santa Ynez Valley Dusty Trail 2005

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

91 points. Everything about this wine’s aroma is, as you’d expect from the name, quite dry. Mesquite smoke and cracked black pepper make an instant appearance, followed by dried blackcurrant and blackberry. Hints of vanilla and toast with strawberry jam open up with a spin in the glass, with mixed kitchen spices and faint notes of chocolate lingering on the edges. Smooth, silky, and bright, this wine is very rich and full with cherry, raspberry, and menthol opening up the palate. Exotic spices and grilled jalapeño move into the mid palate and mingle with a bit of wild honey before introducing this wine’s trademark dustiness. Emerging full of notes of sun baked earth just before the finish, a pleasantly yeasty, warm baguette flavor lingers on the palate long after this wine has gone. A lush, big wine with a nicely balanced amount of earth and tannin, clearly worth buying.

Bridlewood Winery was designed for high-quality, artisan winemaking. Just inside the adobe façade of this Spanish-style winery, state-of-the-art equipment is the order of the day: pneumatic bladder presses, temperature controlled fermenters, gentle grape and wine handling systems, and the finest European and American oak barrels. Our intimate winery is the perfect workshop for winemaker David Hopkins, who selects grapes from dozens of Central Coast vineyards to create his intense , lush Pinot Noir, aromatic Viognier and elegant Chardonnay. Each wine is as unique as the Bridlewood property itself. Read less

Good but not great syrah from Bridlewood. You really can't go wrong with any of their syrahs but this one is not their best in terms of quality/price. Still worth checking out if you can't find any of their others.
