Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: “The 2019 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard comes from a great vineyard outside Santa Maria and is all Syrah that’s still sitting in 50% new barrels. Its dense purple color is followed by a classic Bien Nacido nose of red and blue fruits, cracked pepper, smoke game, and liquid violets. Rich and medium to full-bodied, it has both integrated acidity and gorgeous tannins as well as notable balance and a great finish. Yes, please.”
Vinous 96 Points: “The 2019 Syrah Bien Nacido is fabulous. Inky and explosive, it offers up a melange of blackberry jam, cloves, and bittersweet chocolate. Even with all of its natural richness, the 2019 remains fresh and vibrant in the glass. It is quite simply one of the best finest wines I have tasted from Jeremy Weintraub. Impressive!
Winemaker Notes: “The 2019 Syrah offers all the classic attributes that you’d expect from this venerable cool-climate vineyard. The wine is deeply colored, with a nose of blueberries, leather, cloves, and pepper. The mouth is medium-bodied and features ample tannin and abundant acid.”
