Kinton Syrah Santa Barbara County 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this delicious red wine are harvested in Santa Barbara County, one of California’s most celebrated appellations for Syrah. The juice for this wine was allowed to age in American and French oak barrels for 12 months under the watchful eye of renowned winemaker Peter Fraser, the jet setting winemaker overlooks the Yangarra winery in Australia, as well as the Kinton property that produces only Syrah.(adapted from wichitafallscrave.com)_Not a wimpy wine_, this, with flavors of dark, ripe plums, black cherry and blackberry, followed by a finish of vanilla and spice.

A sleeper of the vintage, the 2005 Syrah reveals blacker fruit than the 2004, more pepper, creme de cassis, pine forest, and underbrush characteristics in its full-bodied, deep style. With good underlying acidity and ripe tannin, it should evolve nicely for 5ndash;7 years.

A reasonably good value, this smoky, slightly herbal, olive, black currant, and licorice-scented and flavored Syrah is a round, easy-to-appreciate wine meant to be consumed over the next 2ndash;4 years.

Dense, full-bodied and tannic, with dry flavors of blackberries, smoked meat, violets and cedar. Solid, but a bit rustic. Needs rich meats to resolve its edgy contradictions.

Serves up a tasty mix of blackberry and wild berry flavors woven in with mineral and pebble notes, ending with a touch of tobacco and sage. Drink now through 2012.

Aromas of blueberry and blackberry pie are tight and a bit astringent, turning lean and tannic. Needs decanting. Drink now through 2011.
