Nautilus Depth

Ballard canyon makes some BRUISER Syrahs, and this is no exception. Inpenetrable staining black red, gorgeous coffee and salted caramel pouring out of the nose–I poured a taste and the phone rang and I had a 10-minute conversation and it filled the room with fresh fruit. I kept asking myself, Is that the wine I just poured over there that I’m smelling???

Lush and ripe on the palate, going down easier than a girl from Culver City. GOBS of decadently ripe blackberry and Charleston Chew fruit, a bite of acid and extrememy manageable tannins. This is a beautiful wine–I mean: it’s not going to woo any low-alcohol natural wine fans, but everybody else who loves California wine would be stupid not to find some of this.
