San Simeon - Syrah - Paso Roble
Overview: San Simeon Cabernet comes only from the best lots that our estate vineyards have to offer. Small lots are picked and fermented individually with minimal intervention to allow the true expression of the soil and climate. The wines are matured in a unique selection of hand-crafted French and American oak barrels.
Beginning life in our sustainably-grown vineyards, the best lots from each estate are hand-selected by our winemaking team. San Simeon Wines are fermented and aged in our state-of-the-art winery. With over 60 years of combined experience, our winemaking team is comprised of Anthony Riboli, Arnaud Debons, and Ben Mayo. With the use of 100% estate-grown fruit, San Simeon wines represent the pinnacle of vineyard to bottle winemaking.
Tasting Notes: Our Syrah reveals deep color, round tannins, and plush mouthfeel with intense flavors and aromas, such as boysenberry, ripe plum, and pomegranate. The lengthy finish shows vanilla, oak spice, and cinnamon nuances from barrel-aging.
Pairing: Pairs well with rich flavors like pepper steak, lamb tagine, and souvlaki.
