Sans Liege "The Prophetess-XIII/XIV" Santa Barbara County Syrah/Mourvedre

SKU #1323247 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

 A multi-vintage blend that's from 2013 and 2014, the 13/14 Prophetess is a blend of 73% Syrah and 27% Mourvèdre, fermented with a touch stems (only from the Syrah) and aged in 40% new barrels. It's deep ruby/purple/opaque color is followed by killer notes of black raspberries, cassis, smoke meats and dried flowers. Probably the finest vintage I've tasted from Kurt, is has full-bodied richness, an elegant, silky, seamless personality and no hard edges. It's already impossible to resist.  (8/2017)

Wine Spectator

 Lean and quite savory, with trim currant, dusty earth and smoky spice flavors that finish on a dry, firm note. (TF, Web-2018)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Santa Maria/Santa Barbara

- Santa Maria and Santa Ynez make up the two AVAs of Santa Barbara County, an area known for its natural beauty and temperate climate. The best grape-growing areas, however, are located on the very coastal reaches of these two appellations, and are cooled by ever-present fog and ocean breezes (it is even cooler and foggier here than Carneros!). As expected, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir thrive while the more inland zones lay claim to Bordeaux varietals and some Rhône blends.
