2008 Les Amours Syrah

Santa Barbara County

VIE Winery is all about "enjoying life"; Les Amours is all about the "loves" in life. 2008 Les Amours Syrah wine embraces this philosophy by blending Syrah from the Thompson and White Hawk vineyards with a little Mourvèdre and Grenache from the Alta Mesa vineyard for structure. The wine evolves in the glass; beginning with sharp, black earthy notes then opening up to black cherry fruit with a hint of white pepper spice. On the palate, the wine tastes of blackberry fruit, then exposes hints of ruby red fruit and Asian spices. The tannins provide a long, elegant finish. This wine is a monster with great structure and good acidity. Cellar for 1-2 years and enjoy it for 8-10 more years.

Rich blue, black and red fruit aromas, with spice and hints of smoke and cola. Tightly-packed on the palate, with compact fruit and spices leading to a long finish. This will open well if you let it breathe.
