Rozak Santa Ynez Valley Syrah 2005
Rozak Ranch Vineyard lies between the Santa Rita and Purisima Hills along the western edge of the Santa Ynez Valley. It is an Exceptional area for producing fine Syrah.
The great thing about this pinot from Randy Rozak is its delicacy. SantaRita Hills has not been know in recent times to make nuanced, airy, pinot but somehow that is exactly what this is. Never leaning to the syrah like qualities shown so much from this region this wine is screaming with savory tomato, sweet basil and earthy Bing cherry fruit. This wine feels like nothing was done to it, that is Randy seems to know when to just get out of the way and let the great fruit that comes off the estate show its true colors with minimal manipulation.
