Santa Ynez Valley
Our 2017 Syrah is composed of grapes from four different blocks on three different vineyards. Joughin Vineyard, outside Los Olivos - and under the care of Winemaker Bruce McGuire - provided the hot weather part of the equation, while Sta. Rita Hills yielded the rest. Oak was also a player, as most of the wine was aged in small 60-gallon French and Hungarian barrels.
