Juicy and concentrated on the palate, mineral-driven and pure, with and excellent finish. Overall the persistent soft tannins, balanced acidity and loads of fruit bode well for long aging of 15 to 20 years.
Color: Beautiful dark velvet red hues
Aroma: Aromas of deep dark wild berries, intense fruit and a black pepper spiciness. As the wine opens more savage and powerful intense notes of olive and black licorice jump out of the glass
Peak Drinking: Now –and with up to twenty years of bottle age from vintage

Fifteen years ago, we set out to make the ultimate Syrah. ÜBER is a co-fermentation of all the top Santa Barbara County Syrah vineyards we work with, consisting of 6 different vineyards and is mainly from our Estate (five clones), Black Oak (two clones), Rancho Boa Vista (three clones), Zotovich and Watch Hill. As each parcel of fruit arrives at the winery, approximately 10% of each pick and each clone is separated and added to the ÜBER fermenter. Three of the Estate clones are co-planted with 5% Viognier
