Lot 694 comes to us from a third-generation wine growing family, and is produced in a state-of-the-art winery using grapes sourced from their southern-facing hilltop vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley. 2018 was a magnificent vintage in Santa Barbara, and this is a dazzling expression of the quality that critics and insiders alike have come to expect from the region.
$30 at the tasting room under its original label, it’s available here for less than half the price! A stupendous deal on one of the best bottles of Syrah I’ve come across all year.
mouth-coating berries and spice
Syrah is my favorite varietal. Beyond the northern Rhone, the CA Central Coast my favorite style and region. This was new, different, and unexpected. Nice nose, then strikingly-viscous mouth feel. Strong berries and nice spice. It was surprisingly sippable on its own. Then, it could have stood up to a much spicier meal than we had paired with it. While not the style I might prefer most (a bit more acid and elegant balance), this one is nicely made, quite good, and quite a value.
Don't know unless you try!
Little disappointed in this one from my mixed case in joining CH. Not what I was hoping for, but certainly drinkable. Just happy that CH is a good source for Syrah because usually not a lot to choose from in the stores. Will keep my out for the next one.
This was a nice solid wine for the price. Wish I would've gotten more before it went out of stock.
Good Value Syrah
This was not bad for the price! Great flavor profile
Really enjoyed this full bodied Syrah from Santa Barbara. Amazing flavors which paired excellent with grilled sausage pizza. Hope it comes back in stock.
Full bodied Syrahs are my favorite. Unbelievable value at this price. Flavors jump out at you.
Wish Cam had more Syrah. It’s our favorite and not often available. It’s a very smooth drinkable wine at an unbeatable price.
This is the kind of Red I'm thrilled to discover. Right out of the bottle it grabs you by the face, gives you a good shake, and then treats you to an explosion of flavor when you take your first mouthful. Thoroughly delightful. I wish I had bought more!
I tried some but before I could order more it was gone
Bold and robust. Notes of dark pitted fruits. Definitely a winner!
