Branzino Syrah 2014 Sta. Rita Hills
The Syrah’s grown in Santa Rita Hills are gaining huge acclaim for their vibrant flavors and lingering mouth feel. This is the region popular for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, so Syrah is not a typical find. However, when done well, it’s one of the best wines in Central California. Winemaker Bryon Bass makes his Branzino brand from some of the best vineyards in the region. This is his third vintage making ‘cold-climate Syrah’ and it’s off the charts. It’s tangy spice, sharp ‘white’ pepper and layered finishing flavors give it body and bounce, perfect for grilled ribs, Asian dishes and Mexican Pozole. 96 cases produced.
