The 2014 Tepusquet Vineyard Syrah has a deep purple color with concentrated raspberry and blackberry flavors, and aromas of mocha. Medium body and balanced tannins contribute to a round, smooth texture. Nice acidity is followed by a long finish with dark berry fruit nuances. This is a classic cool climate Syrah with balanced acidity and true varietal characteristics.
Pairs with baby back ribs with Tepusquet Syrah BBQ sauce. Using the wine in the BBQ sauce makes these intensely spicy and flavorful ribs and an absolute treat when paired to the Tepusquet Vineyard Syrah. A true representation of the Santa Maria Valley.
Blend: 99% Syrah, 1% Viognier
