2018 Syrah Santa Barbara County
Santa Barbara County
TA: 0.60 g/l
20 months in neutral French oak barrels (80%), American oak barrels (15%), and Hungarian oak barrels (5%)
This wine is rich and deeply colored. It offers oak, cedar, and cranberry on the nose, with a fruit forward, smooth and well balanced finish. A beautiful Syrah like this one can hold up to the intense flavors of slow-roasted barbecue pork. A great cut for this might be a pork shoulder with pepper and cumin to bring out the fruitiness in the wine.
