Starts off with sweet-ish lime and fresh, crisp acidity. Give it some tima and a remtalising buttery reward begins adding deptg and conplexity to your glass. Stone fruits a standout. One of the best new world charddy... — 7 days ago

A Santa Barbara County Proprietary Red Wine. Unfiltered and unfined. Entirely constructed of Estrella-clone Syrah from two ends of the Santa Rita Hills and a sprinkling of Viognier. Native-yeast fermented with 40% whole cluster inclusion and raised in large neutral barrels for 26-months. Matthias’ expression of great Syrah from a great Syrah growing region, cool coastal vineyards north of Santa Barbara. Recommended to a little above cellar temperature.
Young boysenberries. Steeping Darjeeling tea. A hint of barbecue smoke drifts by.
The color of a deep burgundy Chrysler Cordoba. Big, velvety mouthfeel, but not Corinthian leather.
Taste: Black cherries, just before 100% ripe. A touch of blueberry pie, but savory, not sweet. Finish: A finish of black pepper with a touch of cocoa nib at the last few touches of finish. Juicy, bustling tannins right to the point where you think they’re a touch too bold, but then the finish reaches over and says “I believe you were mistaken”.

Lovely petite Syrah from Avram Deixler. — a month ago
Art+science mutualism. 25% sauv blanc and 75% pears. Really interesting cider/wine. Tons of funk on the nose, definite Brett, with some lemongrass, sea salt. Palate is funky! The pears seem to be in the background a bit but there’s definitely a sweetness from them. A lot of barnyard, hay, grass as well. Very interesting. Probably not for most people. — 2 months ago
