The Ampelos 2011 ‘Sigma’ Syrache was produced from the winery’s certified sustainable, organic, and biodynamic Santa Rita Hills vineyard. The ‘Sigma’ name was given to Syrache because of the ‘sum’ of these two varietals was just plain hard to beat. Bursting with bright fruit flavors of cherry, blackberry, and plum, with deeper notes of cracked pepper and chocolate, the 2011 Syrache is a strong, bold wine, but with soft, balanced tannins that allow plenty of aging time.
