The 2017 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard is positively gorgeous. Ample, expressive and nuanced, the 2017 exudes class. Inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, menthol, licorice, blood orange, rose petal and mint all grow as this beautifully layered, impeccable Syrah opens up in the glass. The 2017 was done with fully destemmed fruit, and yet it exudes tremendous aromatic intensity. What a beautiful, beautiful wine it is. ... More details

Moving to the Syrah releases, the 2017 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard was mostly destemmed (10% stems) and aged 17 months in a mix of stainless steel and oak. Its deep ruby color is followed by a rocking bouquet of blackberries, wild strawberries, olive tapenade, lavender, and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied, silky, polished, and elegant, it has a terrific mix of freshness and richness, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. It's a terrific value.

This is a classic expression of Ballard Canyon's Goldilocks appeal, blending the rich potential of warmer-weather Syrah with cooler-climate freshness. Aromas of black cherry, fudge and even butterscotch lead to a palate were oaky caramel and cappuccino flavors are cut by crisp pepper spice.

Medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard features baked black cherries, wild blackberries, black raspberries, turned earth, licorice, chocolate and hints of nutmeg and herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it's very spicy with fine, grainy tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long. A nicely restrained and balanced style of Syrah.

Varietal: Syrah

The Shiraz or Syrah grape varietal has seen a huge surge in popularity over the past few decades, partly due to the fact that more and more wineries around the world are beginning to plant and process this robust and flavorful grape for international audiences. This varietal has plenty going for it, and has the special ability of being able to clearly express positive features of its terroir in the bottle, alongside its characteristic flavors of dark berries, pepper and other spices. Shiraz/Syrah is also notably a highly versatile grape, and has been successfully used in several type of still red wine, as well as excellent sparkling and fortified wines. It is also regularly used as a blending grape, where it is prized for its ability to add a bold and strong, spicy punch to mellow, blended wines.

Region: California

California as a wine producing region has grown in size and importance considerably over the past couple of centuries, and today is the proud producer of more than ninety percent of the United States' wines. Indeed, if California was a country, it would be the fourth largest producer of wine in the world, with a vast range of vineyards covering almost half a million acres. The secret to California's success as a wine region has a lot to do with the high quality of its soils, and the fact that it has an extensive Pacific coastline which perfectly tempers the blazing sunshine it experiences all year round. The winds coming off the ocean cool the vines, and the natural valleys and mountainsides which make up most of the state's wine regions make for ideal areas in which to cultivate a variety of high quality grapes.

Country: United States

The first European settlers to consider growing grapevines in the United States must have been delighted when they discovered the now famous wine regions within California, Oregon and elsewhere. Not even in the Old World are there such fertile valleys, made ideal for vine cultivation by the blazing sunshine, long, hot summers and oceanic breezes. As such, it comes as little surprise that today more than eighty-nine percent of United States wines are grown in the valleys and on the mountainsides of California, where arguably some of the finest produce in the world is found. However, American wine does not begin and end with California, and due to the vast size of the country and the incredible range of terrains and climates found within the United States, there is probably no other country on earth which produces such a massive diversity of wines. From ice wines in the northern states, to sparkling wines, aromatized wines, fortified wines, reds, whites, rosés and more, the United States has endless surprises in store for lovers of New World wines.

Appellation: Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is home to many of California's most sought after wines, with a powerful reputation for superbly crafted, old world style big, flavorful and complex red wines. The white wine industry in the region is growing, too, with many wineries within Santa Barbara successfully experimenting with several classic white wine grape varietals. As in much of California, Santa Barbara benefits from the blazing west coast sunshine, coupled with cooling Pacific Ocean breezes and fogs, which help to temper the grapes and slow the ripening process, thus ensuring more flavor and aroma in the resulting wines. Although Santa Barbara is a relatively young wine region, it is home to many wineries who are extremely dedicated when it comes to demonstrating just how good their terroir is, and how characterful their region's wines can be.
