2016 Site "Bien Nacido Vineyard" Syrah Santa Maria Valley (Elsewhere $50+)

SKU #1477073 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The finest wine in the lineup is the 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyards and this beauty comes from a cool, ocean-influenced site just to the east of Santa Maria. Aged 19 months in 80% new French oak, it offers a fabulous perfume of blackberries, black and white pepper, cedar, and subtle marine and iodine notes, which is a classic Bien Nacido character. Medium to full-bodied, impeccably balanced, and with a layered, multi-dimensional texture, it’s going to keep for a decade. Inner quote mark (11/2018)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyards brings together all the best elements of Jeremy Weintraub's very personal style. A whole range of pungent, varietal Syrah aromatics lead into a core of inky/purplish fruit in a rich, sumptuous Syrah loaded with class and personality. Lees stirring adds texture, but there is more than enough aromatic pop to balance things out. This is another fabulous wine in Jeremy Weintraub's range. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Opaque purple-black in color, the 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard is youthfully coiled and slowly gives up scents of chocolate-covered cherries, baked blackberries, olive, peppered salami, licorice, warm blackcurrants, maraschino cherries, coffee grounds and black soil. Full-bodied, rich and dense, it offers tons of ripe black and blue fruits in the mouth with chocolaty notions, plushly textured, gently chewy tannins and good freshness, finishing very long and very savory. 125 cases produced.

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Very dark in the glass, this Syrah by Jeremy Weintraub shows deep aromas of black currant, violet, caramel, cola and smoke. It's richer than most bottlings from this historic vineyard, but the style succeeds with flavors of blackberry and lavender. Framed by tight tannins and bright acid, this will endure. Drink now through 2031. *Cellar Selection* (MK) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The 2016 Site Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyards is 100% Syrah. In the nose it offers classic notes of blackberries, black and white pepper, toast, and blood. The mouth is medium-bodied, with layers of flavors and texture."
