About This Wine

Santa Maria is the “big city” in California’s Central Coast area.

It’s a wonderful destination for wine lovers and foodies because it’s surrounded by vineyards and wineries, and home to its very own style of barbecue: the Santa Maria tri-tip. Numerous restaurants offer their own take on this regional favorite, and on any given weekend, you’ll find members of local service organizations staffing grills in parking lots and serving slices of the tasty beef with salsa, pinquito beans, salad and grilled garlic bread.

This classic meal can be served with several different types of red wine, but for a truly sublime experience, we recommend Syrah — and you’d be hard pressed to find a better pairing partner than the 2016 Bramble Ridge Syrah.

Crafted by winemaker Joe Otos from grapes grown in the Lodi district of California (about 300 miles north of Santa Maria), its alluring wood, smoke and fruit characteristics make it easy to love.

About Syrah

Very dark, rich, powerful wines with great aging potential (as long as 50 years), yet still can be drunk relatively young. Distinct pepper, spice, cherry and leather flavors, with smooth, supple texture. Embodied in majestic wines from France, Australia and, increasingly, California.

    Very solid. Syrah meatiness and smoke backed by spicy fruit

    VERY fruity. Very Jammy. Opened up more as you drink it. Not spicey at all like normal Syrah. Not sure I liked it. It was drinkable though.
