This year we made two syrahs that are created from a blend of vineyards. The Santa Barbara County blend will be out in the fall and is obviously made from Santa Barbara County grapes. This California blend contains the Roll Ranch fruit (Ventura County) that did not make it into the vineyard designated wine, with some Bien Nacido to give it acidity, and Vogelzang for viscosity and intensity. Amazingly seductive already, the aromas are charming, the flavors soft and voluptuous. There is no reason to wait to drink this one.
