91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2012
(sourced from a 3.5-acre block that was planted in 1978, on its own roots): Inky ruby. Pungent aromas of dark berry preserves, cherry pit, olive tapenade and mocha, with a smoky overtone. Broad dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors display very good depth and surprising energy, picking up spiciness with air. The long, sappy finish features slow-building tannins and a hint of candied licorice. These are reportedly the oldest syrah vines in Santa Barbara County.
