Stunning 93 Pointer ~ 95 cases produced!

Jim Knight has many passions and wine and music are right at the top of the list. In naming his wine, a Syrah from Santa Ynez Valley, he decided to pay homage to one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time, Jelly Roll Morton. Like Morton’s jazz recordings, no serious wine collection is complete without Jim’s Syrah, but with under 100 cases produced it will only be enjoyed by a few lucky people who do their homework and search out one of the best kept secrets in Santa Barbara.

The 2012 Jelly Roll “Rimrock” is the fourth vintage of this wine from this fantastic cool-climate, coastal vineyard in San Luis Obispo. This wine marks a new beginning for Jelly Roll and this vineyard site will be the future of Jelly Roll Syrah. Jim Knight wanted to focus on making Syrah in the style of wine that he likes to drink, which are from regions, such as Cornas and Saint Joseph, in the Northern Rhone Valley of France. The Rimrock vineyard gives him that style of Syrah. Knight believes that this is the one of the greatest Syrah vineyards in California because of its “Rhone-like” characteristics that it portrays. It is also because of its naturally low-yielding vines (they are lucky to even get 1 ton/acre in some vintages) and the grapes phenolic ripeness that happens at a low sugar level, thus creating a wine with low alcohol- 13.2% alcohol in the 2012 vintage. Only 95 cases produced.
