Press Gang’s 2016 Syrah comes from the Presqu’ile Vineyard nestled within the Santa Maria Valley. The east-west orientation of this wide open valley means cool Pacific Ocean winds and fog flow freely, settling most noticeably in lower-lying areas. This cool maritime influence lengthens the growing season and contributes to the eventual sugar/acid balance in these wines - the Santa Maria Valley actually has one of the longest extended grape growing seasons in the world! Press Gang’s 2016 Syrah is a classic cool-climate Syrah with aromas of blueberry, sage and intense pepper spice notes. The soft silky tannins are balanced by the fresh acidity and dark fruit nuances. Enjoy!
