Tasting Notes:

Composed of 92% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and 3% Viognier, using 40% whole cluster, the Andremily 2017 No. 6 is sourced from White Hawk, Larner, Harrison-Clarke, Watch Hill and Alta Mesa Vineyards. To be bottled mid-August 2019, it will spend around 22 months in French oak barriques, 60% new.

Tasting Notes:

Not yet bottled, the 2017 No 6 checks in as 92% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, and 3% Viognier that saw the same 40% stems and will see 22 months in 60% new French oak. It too is inky colored and has a gorgeous bouquet of blackcurrants, cassis, scorched earth, violets, and ground pepper. Rich, powerful, full-bodied, and concentrated, it's more elegant and straight than the 2016, with a seamless texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. The 2017 has a touch more Larner Vineyard, which gives more acidity, and you see that in this barrel sample. It's another thrilling wine that's going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and be a classic.

Andremily is a new venture by Jim Binn, a former cellar master at Sine Qua Non. Binn established his Santa Barbara area winery in 2011, he named this after his two children, Andrew and Emily. Binn leases specific acreage within the prestigious White Hawk and Larner Vineyards in Santa Barbara County, and had his first harvest in 2012. Only 250 cases of Syrah were made and it was available primarily through mailing list. Binn focuses on Rhone varietals and has earned a reputation for his winemaking skills, having honed his skills working for Manfred Krankl, the rock star-style proprietor/winemaker at SQN, starting in 1996.
