2016 Syrah deLanda Vineyard
Our estate Syrah from the "Old Block" of our vineyard, most of these vines are over 40 years old. Each year our goal with the full moon Syrah is to create an elegant and pure expression of this region's iconic varietal.
We've held this wine back for a few years for you to enjoy. Now 5 years old, it's smooth, elegant and a staff favorite. It has soft tannins and bright fruit with aromas of black pepper, bacon fat, roasted cranberries and sage. Try pairing this with Santa Maria style tri-tip or soft creamy and funky cheeses.
