The Martellotto 2016 Syrah comes from the Santa Ynez Valley AVA within Santa Barbara County, California. Syrah is an unsung hero in Santa Ynez and grapes for this exquisite wine were selected from the 40-year-old Zaca Mesa Vineyard, which is home to the oldest Syrah vines in the entire County. Martellotto’s Syrah is an epic example of the varietal, offering flavors of blackberry, ripe plum, dried violets, cocoa, white pepper and fresh sage. A touch of vanilla and toasted oak balance the rich, hedonistic finish. This is a wonderful wine to enjoy with food - anything from barbecued meats, hearty pastas, and aged hard cheeses are sure to be tasty pairings at the dinner table.
