2004 Vino V Wines Confundido Santa Barbara County Red Wine

14.5% alc., 50 cases. A blend of Grenache (50%) from Vogelzang Vineyard, Pinot Noir (25%) from Clos Pepe Vineyard, and Syrah (25%) from White Hawk Vineyard. · I don't have any reference point for this unusual blend but I can say it is well crafted. A little good barnyard shows up in the nose. Less fat on the palate than the other two 2004 vintage wines from Vino V. Finishes nicely with zingy fruit. Decent. Reviewed September 5, 2006 WINERY »

2004 Vino V Wines White Hawk Vineyard Santa Barbara County Syrah

15.0% alc., 75 cases, $43. No this isn't a misprint, I do enjoy a good Syrah and the excellence here bears reporting. Aged 21 months in 33% new French oak. · This is one deep, dark mother. It leads off with a huge, rich nose of black fruit and tar. Beautiful dark, plumy fruit dances on the palate. The tannins are reeled in, and the massive structure is surprisingly velvety.
