2014 Syrah, Toasted Rope
Santa Ynez Valley
A blend of 82% Syrah and 18% Viognier from Vogelzang vineyard in Happy Canyon.
"Well-knit and expressive, with raspberry and smoky beef aromas and focused flavors of plum and tobacco, revealing a lively touch of game." - Wine Spectator, 91 points
"Rustic aromas of blackberry, leather, pepper, dried violet and a light tar show on the nose of this appellation-blend bottling. Cocoa and dark elderberry appear on the sip, along with dried herb. It's a light style of Syrah, but vibrant and versatile." - Wine Enthusiast, 90 points
