Kimsey’s 2015 Estate Syrah comes from the Kimsey family’s 22-acre vineyard property nestled in the southwest corner of Ballard Canyon in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara County. This powerful, spice-driven Syrah exudes the terroir of this special site and the distinctive Ballard Canyon AVA that has dramatically risen in popularity in recent years. Deeply perfumed on the nose, the Kimsey 2015 Estate Syrah offers notes of ripe blackberry and cacao with hints of smoked meat and violets. The palate is bold, serious and rich with intricately woven flavors that beautifully mirror the enticing aromas. It is a formidable wine, but so intriguing and wonderfully balanced that it is hard to resist.
