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.
A very nice Syrah, black fruit, hint of leather and a little pepper. Nicely balanced for the price
This was a very good Syrah. I would get again. The price is worth it.
Another great gem from CH Wine. All the nice touches a good syrah can have with some added silkiness to boot. Great bottle. I did not need a lot of air for this open and enjoyed it with steak and then finishing on the patio. Nicely done. Sold out? Say it ain't so.
Needs to Open Up
Really full of plum followed by nice tannin - a bit green but not too punchy or off putting. Softened as it opened up and got much better. Aerate this one!
Balanced flavor, easy to drink and a good value.
Syrah has a unique flavor and this one is a good one. Not a powerful wine, but nice balanced flavor and easy to drink. Good value.
We love Syrahs and this one is an excellent value. Nice color and very drinkable!
I love Syrah's and this one didn't disappoint
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.
