Winemaker Notes
Dark garnet hues offer a telling introduction to our 2011 Estate Syrah. Bold aromas of black berry and black cherry fruits, cured meats, nutmeg and a touch of toasted coconut are mimicked on the palate. A weighty mouthfeel and supple tannins deliver a long-lasting finish.

Production Notes
The Santa Ynez Valley is located just two hours north of Los Angeles and five hours south of San Francisco, adjacent the cold Pacific Ocean. With the greatest concentration of wineries in Santa Barbara County - roughly 18% of its total land planted to vineyards - it is among the favorite weekend destinations for wine aficionados in the Central Coast region.

Average rainfall coupled with a windy spring set the stage for a long, cool summer. True summer heat didn’t arrive until late August, but lasted through early October. Moderate vine vigor led to below-average fruit yields allowing for the development of highly concentrated flavors.
