2019 Optik "Block 49A - Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Syrah (Previously $40)

SKU #1541135 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Hermitage-like notes of smoked black fruits, roasted herbs, jus au viande, and violets define the nose, and it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a focused, elegant texture, silky tannins, and a great finish. It’s young and unevolved yet has beautiful balance as well as character. Give bottles a year or so and enjoy over the following 7-8. 94+ Inner quote mark (3/2021)

Outer quote mark Aromas of cassis, black-cherry pie, roasted fig and strawberry-reduction sauce are dusted in baking spice on the rich nose of this bottling. It’s lush and spicy on the palate, loaded with star anise, grilled berries, roasted fig and cardamom-cream flavors. (MK) Inner quote mark (8/2021)

K&L Notes

Optik is an exciting new project that allows us to experience this Grand Cru vineyard through the lens of one of California's most celebrated winemakers, Joey Tensley. Folks familiar with Tensley's wines won't be disappointed, these are bold, powerful wines with huge concentration and rich fruit.
