From: Santa Barbara County, California, USA
Varietal: Syrah, Mourvedre
VIE is all about “enjoying life,” Les Amours is all about the “loves” in life. The 2017 Les Amours embraces this philosophy by blending Syrah from the White Hawk vineyards with a bit of Mourvèdre for structure.
Tasting Notes: The nose, like the color, is dark with muted dark red and black fruit. Hints of white pepper spice and dark fruit carry from the nose into the palate which enters with concentrated, focused black cherry and blackberry fruit well integrated with firm, gripping tannins. The tannins provide a long, elegant finish rich with dark blackberry and dark plum fruit with hints of burnt bacon grease, pepper, and toasted oak that linger in a long finish.
"Candied yet sour blackberry aromas are a bit tangy on the nose of this bottling, and are also lifted by hints of violet. The palate is slightly sour but smoothed out with boysenberry, aged meat, white-pepper, and licorice flavors." –Matt Kettman, Wine Enthusiast, 88 points
