Rancho Coda Gamay Noir 2021

[Gamay Noir Rancho Coda 2021 First Vintage]. High elevation in west Sonoma coast. Heady perfume of rose water, rose petal, strawberry, red cherry, kirsch, the usual carbonic notes, some Brett. High zippy acidity, a little bit of palpable tannic grip - medium minus level. Spritz. Sheer fun. Mild funk on the short finish. To be bottled in a month. — 3 days ago

Sonoma-Hillsides Syrah 2019

2019 vintage. Truthfully, I have underscored this wine the last two times I’ve had it (this last Nov and 3 weeks ago). Scored it 9.3 both times but it’s a 9.5. It just keeps impressing. Body is biggish but never syrupy/overwhelming. Flavors and textures come hurtling into your palate. This is so well made and delicious. — 4 months ago

I’ve only had the 2016 and 2017…seems to be a carbonic flair to them.

@Shay A Possibly/probably. Drinks almost like a heavier-bodied Burg while retaining all the Syrah flavor flav characteristics.

Tzum Áine Red Blend 2019

This is wonderful. The nose is a cross between pax hillsides, Vieux telegraph la crau, and oregon pinot. Love it. So light and complex. Tons of earth, flowers fresh and dried, strawberries, mint, blackberry, very light touch of leather, lavender. Just keeps going. Will enjoy this evolution and want to try next to some other wines. — 6 months ago

9.0

Monthly WTF wine group meet up. This month is new world vs old world Rhône’s. All wines tasted blind. 3 flights.

I called this old world Syrah. Checks off all the boxes for a C-H. This had more meat and acidity than the Pax it was poured alongside. Similar dark red fruit profile. Thanks
