In our Consilience label, the first varietal we released was our Syrah. Each Syrah we make is unique, and the Hampton Vineyard Syrah is no exception. Big and bold berry notes, accompanied with earth and pepper on the nose, with a full body and grippy tannins.
Our Sanger Estate Syrah packs a punch! Subtle spice, blackberries, blueberries, and slight meatiness on the nose leads to a classic Syrah palate. Nice grippy tannins with a long lingering finish on the palate makes this the perfect Syrah to pair with your favorite Santa Maria style barbeque, or a New York steak
Following the release of Sideways back in 2006, most of the Merlot vines in Santa Ynez Valley were ripped from the ground and replaced with Pinot Noir. While we have had our Merlot planted since 2012, we have been using it mostly for blends and topping barrels. 2019 was an exceptional vintage, and we are so happy to release our first Merlot varietal wine to the public!
