San Benito County, Central Coast


San Benito County Mataro 2015

First time having this one, great nose right off the bat. Definitely worth the $40.00. A little tart on P&P but dissipates with a little air.
K&L had 2 bottles left for $40.00, just bought them after tasting this one.

Misfit Syrah Blend 2016

This is a nice Syrah blend from Central Coast in California.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with a soft spicy finish.

Good by itself or with food.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly to become itself, so be patient.
