2009 Syrah Santa Barbara County


Dark spicy syrah fruit wrapped in a sweet vanilla kiss.

"Grape jelly, pipe smoke, lilac cologne, woody incense and a bit of tar show in the nose of this wine. Flavors of blackberry, wet tobacco, gamy meats and beef jerky are pleasantly rustic." 88pts — M.K. (6/1/2015) Wine Enthusiast Magazine
