A fantastic new release from a new boutique producer in Santa Barbara County - Kimsey -  and this Syrah from their estate Ballard Canyone vineyard is a real beauty from winemaker Matt Dees. Limited.

94 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Syrah is fabulous. Deeply pitched aromatics lead into a core of inky red/purplish fruit in a Syrah that shows off the pedigree of this site to great effect. This sumptuous, full-bodied Syrah shows all the elements that make Ballard Canyon so appealing for Syrah. The 2017 is not the most complex wine I have tasted here, but it is easily among the most delicious."

In 2008, William and Nancy Kimsey established a small, 22-acre vineyard in the Ballard Canyon appellation of Santa Barbara County. The development of this vineyard was a purposeful one. Devotees of pleasurable, cerebral wines, Bill and Nancy had long searched for a site amenable to growing grape varieties they found most compelling; namely several found in the Rhone region of France; syrah, grenache, viognier and roussanne. The winemaker is Matt Dees who also make the wonderful wines at Jonata, The Hilt and Mail Road.
