Winemaker Notes

A blend of co-fermented Syrah and Viognier, all from three vineyard blocks along Alios Canyon Road.

Bottled just a few weeks ago, the 2016 Roasted Slope is a dense, powerful wine. Blood orange, red plum, cherry and mint are some of the many notes that flesh out in this bold, super-delicious Syrah from Andrew Murray. The 7% Viognier adds attractive aromatic top notes to round things out. The 2016 packs a serious punch, that much is obvious, but it also needs time to unwind. Even so, it is a positively stellar wine. Even just the few weeks that passed between my two tastings of the 2016 were enough to show that it is a fabulous wine. Roasted Slope is a barrel selection taken from Watch Hill and Alisos.

Jeb Dunnuck
The Syrah-dominated 2016 Syrah Roasted Slope incorporates a whopping 8% Viognier and was raised in 20% new French oak. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a ripe, sexy wine that has loads of black raspberry and currant fruits, bacon fat, and olive tapenade aromas and flavors, medium to full body, a rounded, silky texture, and ripe tannin. It's a beautiful, layered, elegant wine that can be drunk today with pleasure or cellared for a decade.

Andrew Murray Vineyards, California
Andrew Murray Vineyards Winery Image
Andrew Murray Vineyards is an exciting property that has the potential to produce wines that rival the best from the northern Rhône valley. Andrew Murray, the founder of the eponymous vineyard, is completely committed to growing Rhône varieties and producing wines in the style of Hermitage and Côte Rôtie. His wines are packed with flavor; unfined and unfiltered, these estate-grown wines are destined to become classics. The wines are beautifully packaged, but they have much more than "good looks" going for them. Andrew Murray Vineyards is a 200-acre site located about 1,500 feet above Foxen Canyon Road in the warm, inland portion of the Santa Ynez Valley, making the vineyard the highest in the county. Currently, 34 acres are planted to Syrah, Viognier, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Roussanne in 26 small, steep, carefully situated hillside vineyard blocks.

With a dry and mild climate cooled significantly by moist ocean fog and breezes, Santa Barbara County is a grape-grower’s dream. Part of the larger Central Coast appellation, Santa Barbara is home to Santa Maria Valley and Santa Ynez Valley. The conditions here provide an opportunity for nearly effortless production of high-quality cool-climate wines. This is also the site of the 2004 film Sideways, which caused Pinot Noir’s popularity to skyrocket and brought new acclaim to the region.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the stars of Santa Barbara, producing wines marked by racy acidity. Crisp Sauvignon Blanc and savory Syrah are also important. The region is home to many young and enthusiastic winemakers eager to experiment with less common varieties including Chenin Blanc, Grüner Veltliner, Trousseau Gris, Gamay and Cabernet Franc, making it an exciting area to watch.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
