This blackberry-rich Syrah was made by Doug Margerum, one of the stars of the Santa Barbara County wine scene.
What You Need To Know
Silicon Valley has been a boon to boutique winemaking in California. Cimarone Wines is another case in point: Founders Priscilla and Roger Higgins retired to wine country after careers at the epicenter of the tech industry. Originally, they intended just to grow grapes, and planted a 26-acre vineyard in the rolling hills of coastal Santa Barbara County. It’s located in Happy Canyon, a tiny, warmer pocket of the cool region that’s suited to heat-tolerant grapes such as Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah. Soon they connected with local vintner Doug Margerum, and started making their own wines, among them this lush Syrah. It comes from a selection of the best barrels of the 2009 vintage.
