"Winds of Change" Syrah 2021

 
Like our 2020 Winds of Change Red Wine, the 2021 Syrah includes a good chunk from Santa Barbara County – 68% to be exact, with the remainder coming more locally from the North Coast. A couple of lots included Viognier as a conferment, for an average of just under one percent Viognier within the blend. All lots were fermented with some whole cluster inclusion, and the wines were raised almost exclusively in 500L barrels without racking. No new oak barrels were used. All said, I’m just so happy with this wine – it’s a pleasure to make and an absolute joy to drink. "The 2021 Syrah Winds of Change is fabulous. Silky and perfumed, this mid-weight Syrah is compelling right out of the glass. Scents of lavender, spice, mint and licorice open first, followed by a burst of blue/purplish Syrah fruit. Deceptive in its mid-weight feel, the 2021 is bursting with flavor and freshness. Drink it over the next decade or so." - By Antonio Galloni on April 2023 (94+ points)
