Vallin Santa Barbara County Syrah 2014
Vallin is a collaboration between sommeliers Eric Railsback, Dustin Wilson, & Brian McClintic, with winemaker Justin Willett. Unified by a love of Santa Barbara County and a belief in the terroir's raw potential, they aim to create wines that highlight the climate and soils that are unique to this region. Santa Barbara's cool climate, and its loam and gravel soils, make it perfect for growing Rhone varieties like Syrah, Marsanne, and Viognier. The wines are picked early, so that they have beautiful texture but still maintain great freshness.
Wine AdvocateMade from 100% Syrah, the 2014 Syrah Santa Barbara County offers searing levels of black pepper, black fruits, green herbs and spring flowers in its medium-bodied, lively, firm and slightly compressed personality. It's a solid, cool climate Syrah from Cali to enjoy over the coming 4-5 years.
Please Note: The Vineyard is not responsible for wine that arrives damaged due to heat or cold.
