GRAPES
77% 2012 Syrah, Carrari Vineyard, Los Alamos, Santa Barbara County
14% 2012 Syrah, Sunstone Estate, Santa Ynez Valley
6% 2013 Syrah (Co-fermented with 11% Viognier) Sunstone Estate, Santa Ynez Valley
3% 2013 Viognier, Verna's Vineyard, Los Alamos, Santa Barbara County

MADE
I brought my favorite right-brained approach to this Syrah, like a négociant winemaker, totally dedicated to my instincts and the art of blending. This 2012 Syrah was primarily sourced from the deeply rooted, historically significant vines at Los Alamos vineyard, planted by Joe Carrari in the 1980s. Blended with 20% Sunstone estate Syrah, a fraction of which was co-fermented with estate Viognier, the wine became something really special, especially with the 3% extra addition of the bright and fragrant 2013 Verna's Vineyard Viognier to add a dash of floral spice and finesse. The final blend was filtered and bottled to about 390 cases (12/750mL) on March 31, 2014. ~ Bion Rice, Winemaker

NOTEWORTHY
Syrah is one of the most noble grapes of the Rhône Valley, and the most widely planted Rhone variety in California. Syrah is typically made as a varietal wine in the northern Rhône, and sometimes, like this blend, the Syrah is co-fermented or blended with small amounts of Viognier. Syrah is now the most widely planted Rhône varietal in California, with over 20,000 acres rooted in 2014. If you like this wine, try Tablas Creek's Northern Rhone blends from Paso Robles.

CELLAR
With patience, our 2012 Syrah will develop some added complexity and rounded tannins with 3-5 years in bottle, under ideal cellaring conditions.

Some people, especially those running on busy daily schedules tend to use the pills to help maintain weight since they can not afford to follow all the diet programs. This is not advised. It is recommended that one seek advice from a professional in this field before using the pills. This can save one from many dangers associated with the misuse. The diet pills should always be taken whole. Some people tend to divide the pills to serve a longer period of time. This is not advised and can lead to ineffectiveness. If it is required that one takes a complete tablet, it means that a certain amount of the ingredients are required to achieve the desired goal. It is also recommended that one does not crush the pill and dissolve it in beverages. Chemicals found in beverages have the potential of neutralizing the desired nutrients in the pill thereby leading to ineffectiveness. The best way to take the tablets is swallowing them whole with a glass of water. The diet pills speed up the metabolic processes. This is the key factor that leads to the burning of all the fats in the body. This means that one passes out lots of urine, which subsequently leads to dehydration. It is imperative that the user take lots of water round the clock. This will help curb dehydration, which can lead to health problems. In addition to that, water offers the required medium for the function of the nutrients and elimination of the fats. When buying the review of diet pills, it is imperative that one gets the most recommended dose. People tend to compromise the quality and effectiveness of the tablets due to the variation in cost. The low priced pills depict poor quality, which means their effectiveness is not reliable. Some have also been found to cause health problems. The dose should also be taken as recommended. Over dose will not speed up the process but rather lead to complication. This will increase risk of side effects. If the taking of the pill is forgotten, do not take more to compensate for the lost time. The diet plan enclosed with the diet pills has also to be followed. According to the requirements, the termination of the diet must be done even with no results. This means your body is irresponsive.
