95pointsRefugio Ranch 2016 Barbareño Syrah-Petite Sirah (Santa Ynez Valley)

Editors' Choice

Fantastic purple-leaning aromas of acia, elderberry, boysenberry, pastry dough, lavender and white pepper make for a compelling nose on this blend of 77% Syrah and 23% Petite Sirah. Purple flowers pop on the palate too against a blackberry-laced backdrop, with strong peppery spice throughout the sip. Matt Kettmann
