2010 Les Amours Syrah
Santa Barbara County
The 2010 Les Amours brings together two of our favorite vineyards by blending Syrah from the Thompson and White Hawk vineyards and adding a little Mourvèdre for structure. The wine is inky and dark and blueberries and blackberries that carry onto the palate where you experience toasty oak, graphite, and charcoal notes. Thie wine possesses fabulous fruit, an intense, full-bodied mouthfeel, firm tannins, and a long finish and can be enjoyed over the next 6 to 8 years.
