"The 2020 Ibarra-Young Syrah comes from a vineyard tended by our good friend, Alice Anderson, who shares many of the same regenerative farming philosophies as GG and I. The vineyard was planted in 1971 and was farmed for Qupe most of its lifetime until Alice's takeover two years ago. It is a special place that helps us tell the stories of some of Santa Barbara counties first vineyards plantings ... Think black cherry, crushed graphite, & violets with a crunchy tannin."
