Levo, Nada Mas Syrah, Santa Barbara, California, 2020
Overview of the Wine
The Central Coast of California is a blessed region, naturally endowed with diverse microclimates that produce wines of exceptional power and density. Levo works to showcase the richness of our terroir while still maintaining delicate varietal specificity, electric acidity, immense tension, and perhaps most importantly a sense of levity or lift in the glass. It is our belief that wine has an innate ability to elevate experience, whether that be a special moment with family, celebration or a fine meal.
2021 marks winemaker Bret Urness’ 10th vintage. He continues to craft microlots in a warehouse located in Tin City, Paso Robles, California. His aim is to keep production low so he can personally shepherd each barrel along and maintain complete quality control. Levo does not have an annual case production, as we bottle only the best barrels in the cellar. Whatever doesn’t make the cut is not included in our final blends.
Levo is honored to be working with many talented Central Coast farmers, who maintain some of the very most sought-after plots of dirt in California. This includes Ruben Solorzano of Stolpman, Kimsey, Harrison Clarke and Rancho Boa Vista in Ballard Canyon AVA as well as Michael Larner of Larner Vineyards. We are also honored to be working with the likes of Bill Gibbs, owner of G2, McMahon family of Fulldraw, and Carl Bowker at Caliza in Willow Creek AVA.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Winemakers always say the most recent release is their favorite. With the newest NADA MAS Syrah I really do believe that. It is so insanely pure, varietally correct and a total powerhouse. This is the first Central Coast bottling since 2016 that it is a straight Syrah without any supporting varietals. The four vineyards that we used in this cuvee are just unbelievably great sites on their own and have so much personality I could've made them all vineyard designates. Blending them together created something sublime.
94 Points - Vinous
The 2020 Syrah is another fabulous wine from Bret at Levo. Dark blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, menthol, cloves and licorice are all beautifully delineated. There is terrific energy and cut here.
