Aromas on the nose are a mixture of smoky spices, black cherry, blueberry and hints of tobacco. This wine is rich on the mid-palate with bold fruit and lean, framing acidity. Complex tannins couple with well-integrated oak supports this beautifully complex Syrah. Tight at-first, this wine opens up to show complex flavors and a great structure.

Style: Full, Bold

Cam Confidential
We sourced this beauty from a winemaker famous for Rhône Varietals who hasn't scored anything less than 90 points from Parker or Tanzer on any Syrah he has made since the '90s. From the same producer as Lot 135 (featured in the Wall Street Journal), this Syrah comes from one of the top winemakers in Santa Ynez and it really shows. If you like big, complex central coast Syrah, it doesn’t get much better than this.
