WINE OF THE MONTH

ZINKE

Syrah

Santa Barbara,  $18

350 cases produced

This elegant Syrah is the handywork of Mr. Michael Zinke. Michael sharpened his skills at Cordon Bleu University before apprenticing at the famous Sans Liege Winery. Sans Liege means “without allegiance”. The winery was a pioneer for Rhone varietals in California. Michael took his passion for Rhone grapes, i.e. Syrah and Grenache and struck out on his own to craft exquisite wines from these grapes. Michael cherry picks vineyard blocks that befit his vision. Wines with substance that highlight the hallmarks of each varietal. His motto is “Wines made bullshit free”!  Our Syrah is plucked from an ideal parcel of land in the corner of Ballard Canyon, near his winery in Los Olivos. The fruit is all certified organic, as he is committed to 100% biodynamic production. Further it is fermented with wild yeasts.  The care taken with the source, and fruit, definitely shines through in the glass. Layers of dense dark fruit are framed by chocolate and smoke. Luscious, yet refined. Flashy, yet restrained. The dense red fruit delivers salvation in this cold weather. The chocolate and smoke, like a pleasant campfire to warm your soul. It has been years since a domestic red has graced our wine of the month feature. It took a real gem to earn our December feature. Only 14 Barrels produced, get this Divino exclusive before they are gone.
