Cherry Newton, Rancho Boa Vista Syrah 2014

Cherry Newton, Rancho Boa Vista Syrah 2014

On a warm July day in 2014 a partnership was formed between two like minded wine industry superstars: Cris Cherry, winemaker/owner/farmer at Villa Creek Cellars and Jeff Newton, founder/farmer/viticulteralist of Coastal Vineyard Care. With Jeff’s impeccable vineyard management, Cris’s precision in the cellar, and a shared passion for Syrah grown on cooler sites, a wine label was born. The first CHERRY NEWTON effort, Rancho Boa VistaSyrah, 2014 is now available for purchase.

"Coming from the sandy soils of Ballard Canyon in Santa Barbara County, the 2014 Syrah Boa Vista Vineyard sports a vibrant purple color to go with stunning aromas and flavors of crème de cassis, black raspberry, pepper and assorted violet and floral characteristics. Focused, fresh, elegant, medium to full-bodied and with a firm edge to its structure, it should benefit from short-term cellaring and have 10-12 years of overall longevity."

91 - 93, Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

"Bright violet. Cherry cola, black raspberry, candied flowers and incense on the explosively perfumed nose. Stains the palate with juicy black and blue fruit liqueur and spicecake flavors that are energized by smoky minerals and a suave floral quality. Appealingly sweet and concentrated, finishing with impressive power and vivacity and slow-building, fine-grained tannins."

92, Josh Raynolds, Vinous
