Winemaker Notes

Blackish purple, dense, rich. Aromas of cooked sausage, cocoa and berry fruits jump out of the glass. As the wine opens, multiple layers of charcuterie and raw meats. Classic "old world" aromas that make this vineyard so special. This wine is full bodied, aggressive, rich, blueberry and dried fruits. Concentrated juicy mid palate encompassed by cola and sweet fruit. Dusty tannins complete the framework. The density, texture and depth of this wine are a testament to the quality of the vineyard. The warm days and cool nights of Colson always produce concentrated, fruit-forward wines rich in notes of blackberries, jammy black fruits, graphite and violets. This vintage also shows hints of plums that bring in an extra layer of brightness and complexity. The finish is long and lingering with appealing notes coffee and vanilla. Drink this wine now or age it up to ten years

Wine Enthusiast
Ripe black cherries get aromatic lift from sagebrush and thyme on this wine that Doug Margerum makes from the fruit of his friend, Reo Reiswig. There is an immediate zing of acidity, with red and purple fruit flavors that bounce between raspberry and blueberry while also picking up mocha, herbs and leather along the way. A very dynamic wine.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard is another outstanding Syrah from Doug. Aged 20 months in 33% new French oak and never racked, it offers up lovely, perfumed notes of sweet cherries, blackberry, light pepper and underbrush. Medium-bodied, balanced, well-made and thrillingly drinkable, I don't think it will make old bones, but it will certainly impress for at least 5-7 years.

Margerum Winery Image
Margerum Wine Company is committed to working with the top vineyards in Santa Barbara County to produce small lots of premium wines. The winery is located in Los Olivos in the heart of California's beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. We are part of a growing group of vintners looking to return wine making to its previous form of production – hand-crafted and personal. Owner Doug Margerum and winemaker Doug "Scotty" Scott, craft world-class wine in a temperature controlled building that houses tanks, barrels, and a cold room that is perfect for our production size.

Our commitment is to create handmade wines with place and personality to them that are made to our own standards. We work within the connotations of nature, stressing individuality, and making a production on a human scale. We strive to make wines that we personally enjoy and our hope is others will enjoy them as well. The approach to this is the antithesis of mass production.

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.”
