Co-fermented with 13% Viognier, the 2019 Syrah Sonoma Coast has intense aromas of red and black currants, game meats, green olive and coffee beans plus a waft of eucalyptus. The medium-bodied palate is approachable and nuanced with grainy tannins and seamless freshness as it moves through the mouth, and it has a long, juicy finish. It's very easy to drink and will pair widely at the table.
A handsome red, showing a refined pedigree and elegant red currant and raspberry flavors highlighted by savory pepper and a whiff of garrigue. Finishes with fine-grained tannins.
This is a compelling coastal varietal wine, inviting on the nose in forest pine, white pepper and subtle red fruit. Cofermented with 14% Viognier, the grapes were grown at Cole Creek and Rodgers Creek vineyards. The silky, supple texture shows the potential to age. Enjoy best from 2029–2039. Virginie Boone
