"A terrific Syrah from Doug Margerum, the 2012 Syrah Barden (100% Syrah) was barrel fermented and then aged in 100% new French oak. Offering up classic dark berry fruits, cracked pepper, bacon fat and hints of minerality, this beauty is medium-bodied, nicely concentrated and has bright acidity that carries through the finish. Lengthy, balanced and highly drinkable, enjoy it over the coming 5-8 years."

2012 was a good year for growers, as the yields were high and the quality was very good. The Barden Syrah comes from Santa Rita Hills, fermented in a combination of 500 liter French oak puncheons and 400 liter open-top insulated fermenters. Aged in half new Françoise Frères and half new Ermitage French oak barrels.

BARDEN is a collaboration between Doug Margerum and Jason Barrette. It symbolizes Doug's dream to make wine that expresses Santa Barbara County's top vineyard sites along with Jason’s acute craftsmanship and skill as a winemaker. Barden is Doug Margerum's middle name and its English meaning is “Lives near the boar's den"... a fitting name, as wild boars are often sighted on Margerum's property!
