Piedrasassi 2016 "P.S." Syrah, Santa Barbara

An under-the-radar cult Syrah from Santa Barbara - limited.

previous vintage 90 Points Robert Parker:  "An outstanding Syrah, the Syrah P.S. offers up gorgeous purity of fruit with layered, complex notes of blackberries, olive, underbrush, pepper and hints of leather all emerging from the glass. Fermented with a large percentage of whole cluster, it has grippy, ripe tannin, good acidity and a delicious, hard-to-resist profile that is ideally suited for consuming over the coming handful of years. It’s a screaming value and readers need to latch onto a couple of these. Drink now-2016."

Sashi Moorman is best known for the wines he makes at Stolpman and Evening Land, but the wines from his own Piedrasassi label are just as impressive. I also tasted a few older wines, including the 2003 Syrah, which remains an infant and attests to the ageworthiness of Syrah from selected sites in Santa Barbara County. "
