Purisima Mountain Vineyard Syrah 2010

Wow. This was an absolutely stunning btl of Syrah. On the nose: violets, olive brine, bacon, soft vanilla cream, blackberry, dried blackberry, soft leather...amazing complexity. On the palate: fantastic acidity and density, pure syrah fruit, and very soft tannin on the finish. — a year ago

Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard Syrah 2011

Far and away my best btl, and just lovely now. On the nose: cola, olive brine, blackberry. On the palate: lovely acidity, good density, blackberry, olive brine, soft cola, black pepper, and still a nice tannic spine. Finishes with a flourish of black pepper and spice. Perfect for our mood on this crisp eveming. — 2 years ago

Bien Nacido Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Syrah 2000

Would not guess it was a 2000! Young, bright. Easy on the pallet. An honor to drink with Mr. Lindquist himself over lunch. — 6 months ago

Reserve Santa Barbara County Syrah 2013

Color still very youthful. Nose is somewhat sultry, even with significant air. Lots of smoky gravel, juniper berry, tart dark berry, sweat, dark liquid minerals, dried irises. Focused and more berry-centric in the mouth, concentrated, with a long fragrant finish. A small note of alcoholic pepperiness accompanies some some remains tannin. Lots of unique character. — 2 years ago
