This classic, cool climate Syrah bursts with black pepper, menthol, spice, cured meat, green olive and black currant aromatics. These elements are mirrored on the palate, with great balance, full mid-palate, vibrant red and black berries and integrated tannin, fruit and acid. -Lily Hays, Director of Hospitality and Education

"Lastly, the 2019 Syrah Zotovich Vineyard was 50% destemmed and brought up in neutral barrels. Its almost opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a spicy, complex, medium-bodied Syrah with lots of stemmy, nutty, spicy nuances, ultra-fine tannins, some juicy acidity, and a great finish. It's another impeccably made wine from this label that has tons of character and is well worth seeking out." -Jeb Dunnuck

"Sanguine aromas of rust and crushed rocks meet with uncracked peppercorns, purple and red flowers on the dynamic nose of this bottling. Currant and strawberry flavors pop on the palate, where zippy acidity lifts white-pepper, thyme and purple-flower elements into a unique and delicious combination." -Matt Kettmann

93 points - Wine & Spirits - selected by W&S as a Top 100 Winery in 2022!

"While Matt Brady makes a wide range of syrahs, he excels in cooler-site expressions, like this one from Zotovich Vineyard, a sandlot on Highway 146 in direct line to the ocean and its winds. This smells peppery, in the pink peppercorn and Sichuan range. The carob and raspberry-scented fruit is blue-black and a touch sanguine, for something bloody off the grill, like lamb shoulder." —P.J.C.

93 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The 2019 Syrah Zotovich Vineyard is laced with black pepper, lavender, sage, menthol and incense. This cool-climate, savory Syrah has a ton to o!er. Time in the glass brings out a whole range of red- toned fruit and floral, savory top notes from the 50% whole clusters. Gorgeous." -Antonio Galloni
