The 2020 Syrah Distenta II, bottled in late July of 2022, is beginning to tighten ever-so-slightly since I last tasted it in early 2023, although its merits as an archetypal Syrah are still on display. It incorporates fruit from all four estate vineyards: The Third Twin (43%), Eleven Confessions (33%), Cumulus (21%), and Molly Aïda (3%). It's blended with 7.5% Grenache, 3.9% Mourvèdre, 3.4% Petite Sirah, 1.5% Muscat and 0.8% Petit Manseng, was vinified using 16% whole clusters and matured for around 23 months in 66% new French oak barrels. It has a deep ruby color and heart-stopping aromas of blackcurrants, violets, bitter chocolate and coffee grounds, which blossom over time to tones of prosciutto and mint. The full-bodied palate is concentrated yet nuanced with a harmonious balance of powdery tannins and refreshing acidity, and it wears its alcohol expertly. It has a long finish that hints at more savory character to come, but it will require plenty of time in the bottle. 2,000 cases and 600 magnums were made.

Om denne vin

Central Coast

Vinregionen Central Coast refererer til det store, varierede område i Californien, USA, der strækker sig langs Stillehavskysten fra Santa Barbara County til San Fransisco Bay. Regionen er kendt for sin mangfoldighed af mikroklimaer, jordtyper og vinproduktion af en bred vifte af druesorter, eksempelvis Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah og Zinfandel. Derudover er Central Coast et pionerområde for bæredygtig og økologisk vinproduktion, da mange vinproducenter har vedtaget miljøvenlige praksisser for at bevare jordens sundhed og minimere miljøpåvirkning.
