Wine Tasting at Dragonette Cellars
Their shared passion for great wine brought them to wild, windy and remote northern Santa Barbara County where they spent the next several years seeking out extraordinary, cool-climate vineyards and dedicating themselves to careful, patient, minimalist winemaking.
Given the remarkable climatic and soil diversity in Santa Barbara County, Dragonette Cellars produces small lots of Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah of interest and distinction.
SB Wine Wizard recommends: “7” 2015 Syrah
Seven is Dragonette’s Syrah-based blend, originally named for the seven exceptional cool climate vineyard sites from which it was comprised. Here it is described in their own words – but take it from me, its delish.
“We have refined our vineyard sources for this wine over the years, selecting precise blocks and clones to increase aromatic and flavor complexity, rather than sheer fruit power…
We are thrilled with the performance of this wine, as it is already beginning to show off explosive, complex aromatics – red, blue and black fruits, spices and meats, a rich, yet lifted palate, smooth texture and a scintillatingly long finish for such a young wine.
We expect this wine to continue to develop over the coming years and to last for well over a decade. Early reviews are spectacular, including a 92 in the Connoisseurs’ Guide, with more to come.”
