“Site” is a new venture from Jeremy Weintraub (longtime Seavey winemaker). He sources from the best “Sites” in California. This latest Grenache is just a good example. The 2015 Site is sourced from the Larner Vineyard. The Larner Vineyard would be considered a “Grand Cru” if it was located in France.

Vinous 95 Points: “The 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyards brings together all the best elements of Jeremy Weintraub’s very personal style. A whole range of pungent, varietal Syrah aromatics lead into a core of inky/purplish fruit in a rich, sumptuous Syrah loaded with class and personality. Lees stirring adds texture, but there is more than enough aromatic pop to balance things out. This is another fabulous wine in Jeremy Weintraub’s range.”
Jeb Dunnuck 95 Points: “The finest wine in the lineup is the 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyards and this beauty comes from a cool, ocean-influenced site just to the east of Santa Maria. Aged 19 months in 80% new French oak, it offers a fabulous perfume of blackberries, black and white pepper, cedar, and subtle marine and iodine notes, which is a classic Bien Nacido character. Medium to full-bodied, impeccably balanced, and with a layered, multi-dimensional texture, it’s going to keep for a decade.”
Robert Parker 95 Points: ”Opaque purple-black in color, the 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard is youthfully coiled and slowly gives up scents of chocolate-covered cherries, baked blackberries, olive, peppered salami, licorice, warm blackcurrants, maraschino cherries, coffee grounds and black soil. Full-bodied, rich and dense, it offers tons of ripe black and blue fruits in the mouth with chocolaty notions, plushly textured, gently chewy tannins and good freshness, finishing very long and very savory. 125 cases produced.”
