This savory Syrah was made by one of the US’s masters of Rhône varieties with grapes from one of California’s greatest vineyards.
What You Need To Know
The Bien Nacido vineyard, from which this Syrah hails, is a legendary hillside property located on the central California coast. Sprawling over 800 acres, it produces an outsize number of benchmark red and white wines, chiefly from Burgundian and Rhône varieties. The Miller family, who own the property, sell grapes to a roster of vintners that reads like a Who’s Who in California wine, including Bonny Doon’s Randall Grahm. An influential pioneer of Rhône wines in the US, Grahm is particularly excited about the 2009 vintage of his Bien Nacido Syrah—as was our entire tasting team. With its extravagant aromas of smoked meat, herbs and spice, and rich, tightly coiled fruit, this is definitive, cool-climate California Syrah. Just 34 barrels were produced.
