2017 Syrah - Santa Ynez Valley
Our 2017 Santa Ynez Valley Syrah features grapes from the small 1/4 acre Pace Family vineyard as well as John Sebastiano Vineyard in Santa Rita Hills.
This recently released vintage of our flagship Syrah delivers a punch of juicy, meaty, and robust aromatics we've come to love from Santa Ynez Valley fruit, softened by the cooler climate character of Santa Rita Hills Syrah.
20% whole cluster inclusion. Aged in neutral oak barrels for 18 months.

"The 2017 Syrah offers tons of character in its earthy, savory profile. Leather, game, smoke, licorice, iron and tobacco all shape a potent, virile Syrah that delivers the goods, big time. Heady, with a lot of richness, the 2017 posesses notable depth ... It is a terrific effort from Ryan Pace and Natalie Siddique. Sadly, there are just 50 cases to go around."
