We have had Bridlewood Syrah in the past but we had never visited the Vineyard. We were passing through the very quaint town of Santa Ynez and decided to drop by the vineyard to get a real feel for what they produce. When you first dive into the vineyard you think you are at an old Spanish mission. The building is surrounded by its vineyards on all sides. Once inside we tasted the full array of what Bridlewood produces.
The Bridlewood "Six Gun"Syrah 2004 is limited production and the one that we enjoyed the most. On the nose it had aromas of smoke, leather and plum. On the palate there were big tannins and spice that gave way to a long finish. This is 100% Syrah and very indicative of the Santa Ynez appellation.
