2020 Thompson Throwback



2020 Thompson Throwback 


Varietals: 85% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre

Vineyard: Thompson

Region: Alisos Canyon AVA, Santa Barbara County, CA

Bottle Size: 750ml

This blend is a 10 year anniversary throwback blend. The deep fruit core of Thompson’s legendary Estrella clone Syrah melds perfectly with their Mourvedre which contributes beautiful purple plum and incense notes. This is not the most massive and muscular rendition of either Thompson or Syrah, but very vibrant aromatically with amazing, unique fruit notes and a smooth, soft mouthfeel. There is a strong sense of place in this wine, which conveys coastal Santa Barbara’s unique personality of cool climate yet ripe fruit notes.
