2016 Block 7 Syrah Santa Ynez Valley

The grapes for our Block 7 Syrah were sourced exclusively from our estate vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley. Block 7 Syrah is special because of three attributes: the east-west orientation of the block, the clonal change within the block and co-fermentation with Viognier. This combination of characteristics makes this wine bright and complex. The harvest in 2015 produced reduced yields but the quality of the grapes was excellent. The berry size and clusters were smaller than in years’ past, making the flavor of the fruit wonderfully bold and rich.

 

Our Bridlewood Block 7 Syrah showcases how proper vineyard selection, winemaking techniques and artful blending can create elegant wines. Bright and spicy perfume with hints of black pepper and cardamom seamlessly blend to produce a delectable flavor. A creamy palate with toasted oak notes and just a hint of peppery spice make this wine soft and easy to enjoy!
