This is becoming Paul Lato’s BEST Syrah bottling numerous years in a row.  If one were in the Rhone Valley, it would put many of the big names to shame!  In a recent tasting Paul’s Il Padrino bottling beat out 100 point wines like Alban’s Reva, and others!  I only get 5 cases of this gem, so jump on it NOW, as this might be the year of a 100 Point Syrah from Lato! This wine gets 95-98 points every release!

Jeb Dunnuck – 97-100 Points: “Not yet bottled yet tasted as a final blend, the 2015 Syrah Il Padrino is another killer wine from this estate that will flirt with (or achieve) perfection. Coming 100% from the Bien Nacido vineyard in Santa Maria, it was fermented in stainless steel and spent 20 months in 80% new French oak. Black fruits, bacon fat, tapenade and smoke all flow to a concentrated, incredibly seamless, silky Syrah that has no hard edges, fine, elegant tannin and a great, great finish. It’s up with the finest examples of this cuvée to date.”

Paul Lato 2015 Syrah “Cinematique” Larner Vineyard, Ballard Canyon

This is in my book “THE” best Cinematique to-date bar-none! I believe strongly that is equal, to the great 2014, 2012, 2008 and 2007 vintages (97 Point ratings).

Paul Lato Notes: “In just a few short years, this vineyard has become a holy grail for Rhône varietals in Santa Barbara County, receiving critical acclaim for the quality of the grapes and viticultural practices. Christine Larner and her son, Michael, also a winemaker, are ardent about the continued care and development of their vineyard. The natural beauty of the site with its rolling, sun-splashed hills creates an incredibly peaceful vibe. The Syrah clones of Estrella and 877 planted in this picturesque site produce a rich, intensely flavored wine that retains its elegance

Jed Dunnuck – 97-100 Points: “From the sandy soils in Ballard Canyon and scheduled to be bottled in August, the 2015 Syrah Cinematique sports a similarly deep, inky color to go with a more fruit-driven style in its violets, black raspberry and game scented bouquet. Like the Bien Nacido, it’s incredible on the palate, with a sensational texture, ripe, polished tannin and a blockbuster finish. Which of these two Syrahs you prefer will be due more to personal preferences than any difference in quality. Both are utterly incredible reds I wish every reader could taste.”

Paul Lato’s notes: “This is one of the most historic vineyards in Santa Maria Valley tracing its grape-growing history back to the days of the Spanish land grants. Vineyard Manager Chris Hammell and his dedicated crew continue to take this vineyard to even greater heights. Many of this region’s most acclaimed winemakers have enjoyed great success working with this internationally renowned site.”

Jeb Dunnuck  95 Points: “The 2015 Grenache comes from the Larner Vineyard and will see 20 months in 30% new French oak. Black raspberries, blueberries, potpourri and ample spice notes give way to a rich, full-bodied, seamless beauty that has ripe tannin, a touch more flesh than the Bien Nacido cuvée, and ripe tannin. It too is a smoking good Grenache to drink over the coming 7-8 years.”
