2014 Brecon Syrah, Ballard Canyon

Just sometimes, our winemaker’s youthful wanderlust returns. He’ll get that far away look in his eye and sneak off in search of windswept places, undiscovered vineyards, or obscure European delicacies. Hence this exceptional single vineyard offering from Ballard Canyon (near Solvang).  85.7% Syrah, 9.5% Mourvedre (both Ballard Canyon) with a healthy splash of structure-enhancing Brecon Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (4.8%).

2014 Brecon Tannat

Two Tannats and a splash of old vine Zin please. Certainly! The Dodd Tannat (52.3%) is one hill closer to the ocean than Brecon and provides much of the varietal character and opulent structure. Whereas Glenrose Tannat (35.6%) is just one canyon inland and brings a little ripeness combined with mouthfeel. directly behind Brecon, and added on a bit of a whim, is the Old Casteel Zin (12.1%) which just happens to spice it up and soften out some of the tannins. Totally divine.

2014 Brecon Viognier/Grenache Blanc

Inspired by super aromatic sundrenched Viogniers but without an accompanying cloying oiliness. This blend also adds an interesting twist to the current Grenache Blanc craze creating a Viognier dominant blend (66%) yet with a lighter fresher more approachable side. In time expect stone fruit flavors to dominate, such as nectarines and peaches, while clean citrus characters shine through.

2014 Brecon Zinfandel/Tannat

A favorite with Millie, our Great Pyrenees, as Tannat hales from the shadow of said mountains. Rugged tannins and intense color, it is a rare locale indeed that ripens this grape to perfection. (Think Uruguay, Paso, and Madiran). Frequently hidden in Zin at 3-4%, here it’s unashamedly 35%. Smells/tastes like the full bodied old vine Zin that it is, with a rather distinguished backbone.
