Carucci, Duvarita Vineyard, Syrah, Santa Barbara County 2013
Not long ago we were introduced to Eric Carucci through a mutual winemaker friend. Located in a semi-secret warehouse hideout just off Highway 101 in Paso Robles, this tiny, family-owned winery is producing exceptional and super limited Rhone varietal wines from California’s Central Coast. Completely self-taught as winemakers, Eric and his wife, Lindsay, have a genuine knack for choosing exceptional vineyards and showcasing their unique character. This wine is 100% Syrah from the Duvarita Vineyard, located west of the famed Sta. Rita Hills AVA. We love this wine for it's not so subtle notes of Cranberry, black pepper and grilled meat. Many Syrah wines out there can be overpowering and loaded with alcoholic but this one is straight up Goldilocks Porridge. It's just right. 13.8% alc. Only 200 cases produced.
