Red fruit, strawberry aroma. Not the type of Syrah you will expect from new world. Still tannic and might wanna wait for another 3-4 years. Good acidity, but finish is weak. Not bad wine but somewhat disappointed about this special release.

Winemaker's Notes:

Bien Nacido Vineyards® has become one of the most prestigious and best known vineyards in California. In fact, the Santa Maria appellation owes much of its reputation as a producer of world class wines to the remarkable Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah wines produced from Bien Nacido Vineyards® grapes. We source our syrah from two blocks, both of which are farmed using biodynamic practices. With such superior grapes, the winemaking could afford to be fairly hands-off, and we feel we’ve accomplished a degree of clarity in this wine that allows the sense of place to shine through. Syrah’s signature bacon fat, leather, and spice serve as a rich backdrop for the more delicate perfume of eucalyptus, blackberry and violets. This is sure to be a hit amongst admirers of Old World terroir, as well as with brave New World fruit bombardiers. We recommend decanting this wine as it should age tremendously well, and could use some air when consumed young.
