Winemaker’s Notes
The Syrah Tous les Jours is a quintessential Santa Ynez Valley Syrah. It is simultaneously Bold and Balanced, Rich and Smooth, Fruit Forward and Earthy. It is impossibly dark and full-bodied, without ever going over the top. It is heavily inspired by Northern Rhone Syrah (Hermitage) and Australian Shiraz (Barossa Valley). The aromas and flavors are dominated by black cherry, raspberry, white pepper and toasty oak. It is absolutely unique and special expression of Syrah. Moreover, it is a style that one can enjoy every day. We refer to our “everyday” and easy-drinking Syrah as “Tous les Jours”. A red wine blend of Syrah from Paso Robles and Santa Ynez Valley vineyards, it is carefully blended to produce a soft, smooth Syrah full of ripe berry aromas and flavors. Tous les Jours is consistently lauded as a ‘Crozes-Hermitage look-alike’ by wine critics and has been touted as one of the best wines under $20.

    The 2016 Syrah Tous les Jours sports a medium to deep garnet-purple color and leaps from the glass with vibrant raspberry coulis, black cherry and red currant notes with touches of baking spices and roses. The medium to full-bodied palate fills the mouth with spices and red and black fruits, framed by plush, rounded tannins and finishing on a peppery note. This is so different from the previous vintage of this wine and nicely done too! Drink though 2021.(LPB) (9/2017)

    The 2016 Syrah Tous les Jours is another highly promising wine from Andrew Murray. Stylistically, the 2016 has a bit more aromatic presence than other recent vintages have shown. Savory herb, black pepper and dark Syrah fruit notes are all nicely delineated in this expressive, inviting, budget-friendly Syrah. (AG) (9/2017)

    Always one of the best Syrahs on the broad market for a fair price, this year’s Tous les Jours still delivers the goods. Aromas of purple flowers and snappy boysenberry lead into a palate that’s extremely fresh and vibrant with rounded berry flavors. *Editor’s Choice* (MK) (10/2018)

     

    The value-priced 2016 Syrah Tous les Jours is 100% Syrah from a handful of vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley. It has classic Syrah notes of barbecue smoke, peppered meats, underbrush, and black and blue fruits. As with all of Andrew’s wines, it’s elegant and pure on the palate, with medium body, bright acidity, and a clean, crisp finish. (JD) (10/2018)
