Kinton is dedicated to producing Syrah from some of the finest vineyard sites in Santa
Barbara County. Their wines are dense and concentrated, elegant and sleek. It's not by accident
that Kinton is located in Santa Barbara County —one of California's most celebrated appellations for
Syrah. The unique conditions of this region allow Kinton to create Syrahs displaying both intensity and balance.
The 2005 is racy with plum and dark berry, brightened by high notes of cherry, spiced with black
pepper, and scented in the essence of smoky dark chocolate.
This wine is big and bold with an awesome rich color. There is fruit and spice on the nose and taste. It finishes nice and can easily pair with food or alone. We had it with a semi-spicy chicken chili and it was great.
