2016 Carr Syrah
Tierra Alta Vineyard
This Syrah from Ballard Canyon is as complex as it is delicious. Beside the obvious purple fruit elements, there are subtle yet distinct notes of green apple on the nose, nestled in hints of licorice root. Once this wine hits the palate, it fills the mouth with flavors of black cherry and root beer, finishing with lasting, silky tannins. Pair with Santa Maria Style Tri-Tip with Cider-Braised Pinquito Beans.
