Displays gorgeous fruit, with a medley of wild berry, blackberry, huckleberry and boysenberry fruit that's pure, rich and intense, yet elegant, supple and refined. The fruit flavors are sustained on the finish, ending minerally, with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2017.

Offers wonderful complexity, elegance and finesse, with a lively mix of ripe, vivid blueberry, wild berry and huckleberry flavors that are intense, full-bodied, focused and direct, ending with a subtle dash of berry fruit and fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2018.

This year's Santa Barbara County Syrah was sourced from three distinct vineyards: Camp 4 (40%), Colson Canyon (40%) and Tierra Alta (20%). The Camp 4 brings in bright notes of raspberry, red stone fruits, and minerals while the Colson Canyon introduces a deep, jammy core of black fruits and berries with hints of chocolate, violets and smoked meat. The Tierra Alta brings it all together by adding floral notes to the nose and a streak of earth to the lush, smooth palate. Drink this wine now or age it over the next 3 to 5 years. - Winery ** Only 6 in Stock **
