“The 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido is a stellar wine. Vivid and explosive on the palate, with tremendous energy, the 2016 is utterly captivating. Dark Syrah fruit, savory herb and crushed rock notes are all present. The 2016 finishes with substantial weight, aromatic intensity and pure power. I loved it.” – Vinous, 94pts

Syrah

Of the noble grape varieties, Syrah may have the oldest geography and history. The vines origins are thought to date back to one of the world’s earliest wine-producing regions, the city of Shiraz in the Middle East. Now worshipped in the Rhône Valley in France, these dark, dense, and powerful wines can be just as distinct as Cabernet Sauvignon. You’ll find this grape also largely grown in Australia, where it is identifiable as Shiraz.

Sometimes known to be “meaty,” think exotic spices and darker meat dishes to help showcase the complexity of these wines. Syrah needs time to show its greatness, but when it does, you’ll be thankful you had a bottle!

“Piedrasassi is committed to ecological responsibility and the health of our patrons; our wines are structured to unfurl with age, to share with each passing year a new facet of a time and place; and wine must show up at the dinner table — that is, its most complete expression should be apparent alongside food and in good company. The common thread among all the wines we love and admire is that there are both a mind and a place behind them. Wine, just like food, or music, or art, should have a certain kind of authenticity–it should come from someone and somewhere. This idea is what informs the work that we do. We try to make honest wines that we believe in. We hope you like them.” – Sashi Moorman, Piedrasassi

Piedrasassi sources Syrah from select vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley and Sta. Rita Hills, and cultivates an estate vineyard in the Arroyo Grande Valley, some six miles from the ocean.  Receptive to the daily rhythms of the Pacific’s cooling winds and pervasive fog, these valleys and, in particular, their constituent hillsides, are host to some of California’s most compelling terroir for Syrah.
