Holus Bolus, Syrah, 2007.
I love the new vintage! And not just because the winemaker is so cute and happens to be legally tied to me for eternity. Peter says, "It's the best Holus Bolus we've ever made and has the most balance. It's super fresh."
This wine contains about 30% declassified Piedrasassi, meaning it's rich and delicious. It comes from 6 different vineyards in Los Alamos and Santa Ynez. It has great acidity and these very lovely old school black olivey notes. Me likey a lot!
It's just released this week but is already available at Palate, Blair's in Silverlake and Wine House
Retails for $25-$28.
