Winemaker Peter Fraser Notes
At Kinton, we are dedicated to producing Syrah from some of the finest vineyard sites in Santa Barbara County. Our wines are dense and concentrated, elegant and sleek. It’s not by accident that Kinton is located in Santa Barbara County—one of California’s most celebrated appellations for Syrah. The unique conditions of our region let us create Syrahs displaying both intensity and balance.

Peter Fraser oversees all of our viticulture and winemaking at Kinton Vineyards. When it comes to winemaking philosophy, Peter believes it is less about technique and more about preserving the essential taste of the vineyard. While he employs traditional winemaking methods such as open-top fermentation, hand punch-down, and wild yeast ...more... fermentations, Peter knows that intelligent viticulture is the key to creating great wines.

The 2005 is racy with plum and dark berry, brightened by high notes of cherry, spiced with black pepper, and scented in the essence of smoky dark chocolate.
