While the Sta. Rita Hills has certainly built a reputation for making world-class Pinot Noir, we are equally enamored with the cold-climate Syrah from the region. The daily winds and refrigerated-sunlight climate create Syrah that are completely cerebral and more fascinating than their louder, bombastic cousins from around the state. They are far savory, fruit driven and loaded with black brambleberry, Mediterranean nuances of olive, thyme and saline, slightly brooding, very dark and intense. These are amazing examples of how thought-provoking and compelling Syrah can be. This three-pack vertical is a treat for any Syrah aficionado and collector.
