Central Coast Syrah

Sine Qua Non

Le Supplément Syrah 2013

On my list of favorite Syrahs! A beautiful dark magenta color. Blackberry tart cherry, floral aromas jump from the glass with secondary notes of pencil lead and sandalwood and hints of bacon fat and milk chocolate floating. Taste - a smooth creamy and richly structured wine. Blueberry and cherry fruits still dominate with pepper, crushed rock and tar following. The finish is long with lingering notes of bitter chocolate and espresso and a touch of heat on the end but overall flavors are well integrated. Should open up even more throughput the evening. Luv the label. — 9 days ago

Cumulus Vineyard No. 7 Syrah Blend 2013

Day 2 of turkey hunting. Served with two beef tenderloins, garlic mashed potatoes, charred cauliflower and a salad. More tannic than the 2014. This will go the distance. Decanted for 2-3 hours. Delicious! — 22 days ago

Booker Vineyard Syrah Mourvédre 2014

After the 2000 C-d-P and ‘98 barista ballet shiraz , this wine seemed younger and a bit of a fruit Bomb .
On it’s own stood really well. Big and structured wine.

Californio Hyde Vineyard Syrah 2008

Beautiful syrah that I will really have trouble identifying blindly. Ruby colour almost still purple even after 15 years, suggesting still beautiful years of ageing potential. On the nose, the bouquet is rich and intense, marked by the Bordeaux style, on a beautifully melted ageing with primary notes. The whole is rich and complex, between notes of black fruits (blackberry, blueberry, plum) tobacco ageing, chocolate, vanilla, cypress; evolved undergrowth notes and so on, it's a real taste journey!

Magnifique syrah que j’aurai vraiment du mal à identifier à l’aveugle. Robe rubis presqu’encore violine même après 15 ans, suggérant encore de belles années de potentiel de garde. Au nez le bouquet est riche et intense, marqué par le style bordelais, sur un élevage admirablement fondu aux notes primaire. L’ensemble est riche et complexe, entres notes de fruits noirs (mûre, myrtille, prune) élevage tabac, chocolat, vanille, cyprès; notes évoluées sous-bois et j’en passe, c’est un vrai voyage gustatif!

Tierra Alta Vineyard Syrah 2018

Blackberry, anise, wood smoke, hints of blueberry, a thread of olives throughout. It’s Cali Syrah putting off a little N. Rhône vibe. — 22 days ago

Apalta Vineyard Syrah 2005

Just one of those highlight wines. Seventeen year old Syrah that still packs a punch. Deep notes of blackberry, fig, licorice and tobacco. Powerful with an elegantly refined mid pallet and a savory finish. The kind of wine you need to finish off the night. — 12 days ago
