Morello’s 2012 Demetria Estate Syrah comes from a distinct site above the Foxen Canyon in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara County. The Demetria Estate property is located in one of the warmer regions of the valley, and is planted exclusively to Rhone varietals where these bolder grapes can truly shine. Morello’s Syrah has lush aromas of blueberry and subtle oak. On the palate, this wine is smoothly balanced, restrained and elegant with complex flavors of cola, vanilla and baking spices that meld gracefully with the more traditional rustic Syrah flavors. The tannins are focused yet graceful and linger on the finish. This wine is stunning now and should age beautifully over the next 8 years.
