SKU #1465104

About this producer: "Chris and Kathleen (Barnato) Whitcraft started Whitcraft Winery in 1985. Chris hosted a local wine radio program in Santa Barbara County for more than ten years and learned his craft from some of the best winemakers in California - Joe Heitz (Heitz Cellars), Dick Graff (Founded Chalone Winery and its AVA), and Burt Williams (Williams Selyem & Morning Dew Ranch) to name a few. What began as a hobby grew into both a passion and a lifestyle, the commitment to which is present to this day in every bottle of our wine. This passion for wine was passed on to their children, Drake and Alyssa. While Chris passed in 2014, Drake continues to carry on the tradition of excellent winemaking within the Whitcraft family."

Low-ripe in style, My Friend Matt's Vineyard Syrah from Whitcraft shows just how versatile syrah can be. Is it pinot? No, but in many ways this bottle drinks like one and it drinks like a dream. Notes of lavender, red currant, and a kick of various herbaceous characters show just how elegant and refined Drake Whitcraft's style is.

Drake Whitcraft's wines have acclaimed a cult following over the years, with particular attention to his Pinot Noirs, Syrahs, & Chardonnays. The wines carry an inherent attribute that can only be traced back to Whitcraft, an ethereal signature of Drake's true hands-off approach in his winemaking style. Mentored by Burt Williams, Drake learned "Buy good grapes, get them to the barrel and don’t mess it up." This Syrah carries airy notes of lavender, blackberries, black olives, black pepper, & wild herbs. Incredibly vibrant with a graceful body, and still packing a powerful structure one would seek in Syrah. Whitcraft wines are a true expression of the diverse terroir California has to offer, and this Syrah is no exception.
