Dragonette’s 2016 ‘Seven’ Syrah is a blend of 89% Syrah, 10% Grenache and 1% Viognier from four vineyards within the Sta. Rita Hills and Ballard Canyon AVA’s of Santa Barbara County. The seven components (three varietals and four vineyards) provided the inspiration for the name, Seven, and the result is a beautifully complex wine that represents the diversity of the region. This Syrah is a deep, densely filled blend that delivers plenty of concentrated blackberry fruit with notes of pepper, black mushrooms, black cherries and potpourri before coming together in a smoky finish. Full-bodied and deliciously savory with soft, fine-grained tannins, this Syrah can be counted on to evolve in the cellar for another six to ten years.
