In the glass this Santa Barbara Syrah has a HUGE calmata olive core with electric purple edges surrounded by a light pink halo….
The nose shows an impossible balance of power and definition with beautiful restraint ————-> There’s a bacon fat backbone that opens slowly into notes of blackberries, cola, and a tinge of acid that leaves my jaw on the floor….
A taste starts with welcomed acidity that mellows into more of the bacon fat I got on the nose before raspberries and black cherries join forces to create something that’s NOTHING SHORT of SPECIAL ————-> The mid-palate teeters back onto the gamey side of things with dark meat chicken and puréed blueberries before this sexy number shows a black fruit ending with a cassis pop that ties everything together nicely….
Y’all have heard me wax on poetically over and over and over when it comes to Bonaccorsi Wine Company Pinots but here’s a Syrah under the label that much like the rest of their wines, DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!!!! This thing shows some solid acidity with big black fruit notes that float on a silky mouthfeel and BEGS for something straight off the grill…. 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with a song that’s silky smooth with a bit of pop like Of Monsters And Men – Dirty Paws
