The 2008 Syrah Upslope (which Greg Jaffurs describes as selected barrels from his favorite vineyards) is slightly more restrained than the Bien Nacido, with more obvious structure. The wine smells almost like Syrah blood. Dense ruby/purple, super-rich, it is slightly more velvety-textured than the Bien Nacido. Both sweetness and tannins are present in this seductive wine, which is full-bodied and rich, with loads of black fruits, earth, spice, camphor, and floral notes. It is a brilliant Syrah, but at present, I give the Bien Nacido a slight edge. This is certainly a beautiful wine, and should anyone have the chance to buy it, "Don't think twice." Flawless, seamless, with brilliant sweet blackberry and cassis fruit, this is a beauty to drink over the next 10-15+ years. - Robert Parker 95+ Points Sleek and focused, with a complex, layered mix of spice, dried berry, hazelnut, fresh earth and floral, peppery scents.

The 2008 Santa Barbara County Syrah combines fruit from most of the vineyards we work with. More than a sum of its parts it is dark and rich. This year's vintage has a little Petite Sirah blended in to add power and complexity. It is a serious wine that is approachable in its youth. Sharing the same farming and winemaking techniques as our vineyard designated wines it is a wine of great complexity and lower price. 1166 cases produced Winemaker's note
