2012 Big Star Syrah


2012 Big Star Syrah

$24.95 (retail) Wine Club pricing reflected in receipt

We’ve got two wines this month that you’ll never find anywhere, nor will you be able to purchase them again after our supply is exhausted:  2012 Big Star Syrah and 2012 Bright Star Chardonnay.  When we purchased this extremely limited wine, we agreed not to reveal the winemaker, but we cannot obscure the fact that both were “produced and bottled” by Sanguis, a highly regarded winery based in Santa Barbara.

If you haven’t heard of this producer it is likely because its wines are made in very small quantities and you have to get on a list to purchase them.  Typically, Sanguis wines are regularly reviewed by the major industry publications and critics and they typically score in the 90+ range.

Both Big Star and Bright Star were vinted in a custom-crush deal that for some reason fell through.  We secured these wines at fabulous pricing, which we are happy to pass along to our beloved Wine Club members.

This is a rare, limited and fascinating opportunity to have access to wonderful wines that will never be produced again.  We hope you enjoy them!

Gary’s Tasting Notes:  This wine has an intensity that spans the troika of color, nose and flavor.  Royally dense purple, Big Star will radiate in your Reidel.  Violets bloom in the glass and black fruits will smother your palate.  I’m giving this wine a “10” on the finish because it is as persistent as a teenage who wants to stay out until 10 p.m.  Got steak?  Pair it with this puppy!
