2010 Santa Barbara County Syrah
Syrah •White Hawk Vineyard
Santa Barbara County
Today’s Vie Winery 2010 Santa Barbara County Syrah comes to us from our dear friend, winemaker Bryan Kane. He’s wowed us recently with his high-elevation Cabs, and this Syrah just might be one of his best!
Loaded with juicy, lush notes of dark fruit, this wine is incredibly robust, yet with a restraint that only comes from expert winemaking. Robert Parker loved this wine, and called it an absolute knockout. Any red wine fans looking for something to pair with a perfectly grilled steak should look no further than this wine.
At over 25% off, this 92 Point wine is an absolute steal. Make sure you stock up!
Inky scarlet, with flecks of purple throughout the center of the glass and a magenta ring running around the edge.
Bold hints of sweet plum and blackberry are laid overtop notes of aged sandalwood, cigar box, fresh forest floor, smoky oak spice, sage, rosemary, and a touch of clove.
Juicy, lush, and super dark, with reduced dark fruit flavors of blackberry, plum, and black currant balanced against earthy hints of cedar wood, sweet tobacco leaf, espresso bean, fallen leaves, mocha, and just a touch of sage.
Powerful and robust, this expressive wine has a lingering finish, with a touch of a white pepper bite at the very end of the finish.
Perfectly grilled thick-cut filet mignon, served with roasted root vegetables and mushrooms.
