Winemaker Notes

Bright, purple-violet, deep dark core with aromas of dark spices complimented with wafts of blueberry, blackberry, licorice and black olive. Secondary notes of rosemary, peppercorn, and thyme come to the fore. Plush velvety tannins – rounded, polished, and dense. Flavors of espresso, dark chocolate with high notes of sarsaparilla, aniseed & green olive, combines in an intricate weave of savory and spice, encapsulated by velvety tannins. The persistent length and structure should ensure drinking pleasure over the next 15+ years

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This annually anticipated bottling offers a blend of Doug Margerum’s top barrels from a variety of vineyards. In this vintage, aromas of baking spice and red fruit come with minty sagebrush lift. Herbs, from oregano to dried thyme, play a central role on the palate, with red cherry fruit and a tighter, tart plum skin finish, proving slightly lighter in style.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of the flagship releases from Margerum is the 2012 Syrah Uber, which sees a long, wild fermentation with grapes added over time as the different vineyards are harvested. In this case, it resulted in a 45-day maceration. Aged 20 months in mostly new French oak and never racked, it has more obvious oak than the Colson Canyon release and gives up blacker fruits, pepper, dried flowers and toasted spice. Slightly angular and edgy at the moment, I like its concentration and structure. Give it a year or two, and plan on drinking bottles through 2024.
Rating: 90+
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Broodingly intense, with floral aromas of violet and blueberry and complex but still tightly wound flavors of blackberry, mineral and smoked pepper beef. Drink now through 2025.

Margerum, California
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.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

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.”
