This is an absolute steal on a wine that easily sells for twice the price! A classic blend of Syrah and Viognier, this red brings the Northern Rhone Valley home to California in a full-bodied and mesmerizing red.

If you’re looking for a new dimension on Syrah, this is it. Co-fermenting red and white grapes together gives the Côte Blonde exotic floral aromas atop its earthy, dark-fruited Syrah base to create a wine that’s complex and straight up tasty! Viognier also keeps the wine from feeling heavy on the palate, making this a red that’s rich but still light on its feet. Plush and fruity, Côte de Blonde brings flavors of baking spice, black fruit, and vanilla together in a trio perfect for welcoming chilly fall nights.

About the wine

Westerly certainly succeeded with their motto, “to craft wines for enjoyment” in the 2014 Côte Blonde, and we think both Syrah novices and collectors will fall in love with this special bottling. In the heart of Santa Ynez, the days are hot and the nights are surprisingly chilly, which give this wine great acidity and the structure to age well for years to come. Dark purple in color, the 2014 Syrah bursts with exotic floral aromas and beautiful black fruit like plums, cherries, and blackberries.

Plus, Westerly is committed to philanthropy, and each bottle contributes to bringing clean drinking water to millions across the globe--we’ll raise a glass of Côte de Blonde to that! Get yours before this limited release sells out!

Reviews

4.2 ★ - Vivino Users

"Very balanced California cote de Rhone, wonderful structure and layers, elegant European finish of tannin and spice, great wine." Perry M.

95 pts - Alex Casella, WSET Advanced  

"This wine has deep dense opaque color with classic Santa Barbara Syrah undertones on the nose. Ripe and rich black fruits with a savory floral component. Briary black and blue fruit hits the palate with early savory cured meats while the palate finishes with luscious texture and moderate tannin. This can withstand some heavier, richer dishes and pairs well with herbal crusts such as lamb, smoked duck or roasted game birds. Enjoy now and over the next 7 years in cellar."

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
