Aromas of smoked meat drizzled with berry sauce and dusted in cracked pepper show on the nose of this estate bottling. Clean lines of blackberry, dried herbs and blackberry converge on the cohesive palate.
Wine Tasting Notes
The grapes for our Ballard Canyon Estate Syrah release are from the vineyards around the winery, located in beautiful Ballard Canyon. Situated in the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation, Ballard Canyon has its own nuances and micro-climates that make it a near-perfect place for Rhone grape varietals such as Syrah. This bottling contains classic Ballard Canyon aromas of cassis and blackberry, with hints of licorice. Concentrated flavors of dried cherries, blackberries and cocoa mix with velvety tannins that linger on the palate.
