2014 Samsara Syrah Zotovich Vineyard, USA, California, Santa Barbara, Sta. Rita Hills, Wine Review
Great showing for this wine. A cooler climate style of Syrah. Garnet in color, ruby at the rim. Mostly clear and bright. The nose has boysenberries, black pepper, black olives and slight char. Medium to full bodied. On the palate, black raspberries, some black cherries with underlying earthiness. Good acidity. Nice finish. This is drinking well now and should continue to do so for another seven to ten years. Nice on its own, it should be better with food. Chili or beef stew would be a nice choice.
