Kunin Wines Santa Barbara County Syrah 2016 75cl
"Spiced blackberry fruit aromas, blended with hints of smoked meat, wild herbs and olives. Medium bodied and juicy, yet full of ripe dark fruit and sweet tannins. Medium bodied and juicy, yet full of ripe dark fruit and sweet tannins."
Seth Kunin, a transplanted New Yorker, first arrived on the west coast to work in California's fine dining scene, where he fell in love with wine and ended up quitting the restaurant business. After several years working for other producers, he set his sights on producing a range of wines reminiscent of the elegant Rhône wines he loved, settling on the Santa Barbara region - California's coolest wine-growing area and until then known chiefly for its high-quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. He sadly passed away in October 2017, leaving his wife and business partner Magan to take up the reins and continue his legacy.
