WE 92 Pts. - Winemaker Notes - Classic Ballard Canyon Syrah aromas of cassis and blackberry, with hints of licorice. Concentrated flavors of dried cherries, blackberries and cocoa mix with velvety tannins that linger on the palate. The grapes for our Ballard Canyon Estate Syrah release are from the estate vineyards around the winery, located in the beautiful Ballard Canyon. Located in the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation, Ballard Canyon has its own nuances and micro-climates that make it a near-perfect place for grape varietals such as Syrah.
According to the Wine Enthusiast: This rich Syrah leaves little to the imagination. It’s dramatic in blackberry and cherry fruit and exotic spices, sweetened with new oak. Delicious now and for the next few years. Rated 90+
