2012 Les Amours Syrah
Santa Barbara County
Our 2012 Les Amours Syrah once again blends fruit from two vineyards that we absolutely love - Thompson and White Hawk. Dark red and dense in the glass, this wine offers up the best of both terroirs, with heady aromas of blue and red fruits, wild flowers, sweet tobacco, dried herbs, smoky game, and a hint of white pepper. On the palate the wine is smooth and long, with soft tannins structuring the lasting finish. Cellar this wine over the next year or two, and enjoy it by itself, or with hearty faire over the next 8-10 years.
