2014 Power to the People
2014 Power to The People:
Varietals: 97% Syrah (3% Viognier Co-Fermentation)
Vineyards: Thompson Vineyard & McGinley Vineyard
Regions: Los Alamos & Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara
Bottle Size: 750ml
PTTP: Our flagship wine, representing great Syrah from Santa Barbara County. Our goal with Power is to highlight Santa Barbara Syrah’s ability to express beautiful complexity along with ripeness and full bodied power and richness.
2014 PTTP is a throwback to our inaugural release back in 2009, blending Syrah from our original Thompson and McGinley vineyards. Yields at both vineyards are always very low allowing for concentrated fruit and development to full ripeness.
2014 was a particularly ripe vintage so this Power is a beast. While being very concentrated and powerful it also shows classic Northern Rhône Syrah notes including peppercorn and cured meat.
