"Syrah! Syrah! Syrah! 🍷 At only TWO BARRELS produced, this Palomar Mountain Syrah from San Diego County is super rare. In fact, all of @acriwineco’s wines are pretty rare. Founded in 2018, the winery makes extremely small quantities of each wine they produce...which, of course, made me want to try them even more! Acri is based out of Los Angeles and aims to highlight the beauty that can come out of Southern California vineyards. And let me tell you...this Syrah is DEF a beaut! My fam and I paired it with filets, and the deep black fruit, suble oak influences, and savory olive notes complemented it so well. But what’s even cooler, is that with each new wine I share, my family members are learning more and more about different things they like. This is a perfect example - we have a new Syrah fan in da house (my dad)! And isn't that what it's all about? Sharing an awesome bottle with people you love...and helping them find new things that THEY love too! You know what else I love? Exploring low intervention, sustainably farmed wines, and companies that are family or women owned. Acri fits the bill on all accounts here, producing well-crafted varietal-driven wines with incredible quality. Oh, and the artwork? Their labels are SO fun, right? The label art was a collab with LA-native, mixed-media artist @crashward…I love the intrigue and and spunk it brings to the bottle."
