The Santa Ynez Syrah has a very enticing lifted aroma of strawberry rhubarb pie. Warm ripe plum-like fruit aromas also permeate the palate. The wine has a soft and supple yet vibrant mouthfeel that is both mouthcoating and lively at the same time. It’s chock-full of spicy red fruit character, cranberry, dried cherry, clove, and a touch of smokiness. Tannins are barely there, very light but adding to the structure. A wine to enjoy with a variety of savory or spicy foods. Always an easy drinking – it’s hard not to love Syrah from a cooler climate which emphasizes soft, juicy red fruit character.
