Sonoma County Syrah


Bella Rosa Sonoma Cost Syrah Rosé 2019

Rosé for Mother’s Day!

Here’s to all of the moms out there 💕💕 We’re grateful for you, you help make the world go ‘round 🌎

This is a beautiful rosé made from Syrah; I love how fragrant this wine is, offering fresh strawberry and raspberry notes also a flinty, smoky influence.

We were introduced to this amazing winery while in Sonoma recently and we’re not looking back! We love their wines and story. Check out my prior notes for more detail.

Kobler Family Vineyard Syrah 2012

Totally resolved. Just a hint of tannin. Not the funk I usually associate with Syrah. A little short but what a nose! — 17 days ago

We were so fortunate to have Jeff Brinkman, Rhys’ winemaker for the past 15 years, join our tasting of nine Rhys Syrahs from 2003 - 2013. Stew, smoke, meat, classic bret. I loved it, others not so much. — 8 days ago

Bella Flor Sonoma County Syrah Rosé 2019

Stopping by Ceja Vineyards for a tasting of five of their wines. @cejavineyards

Ceja is a Mexican-American family owned winery producing wines from both Napa and Sonoma valleys. “In one generation the Ceja family has gone from immigrant vineyard workers to grape growers and winery owners.” 💪

I loved learning about the inspiring background of this winery and family devotion to excellence. 💕💕

The wines are designed to be paired with food (especially, though not exclusively, traditional Mexican cuisine), but are delicious on their own, too.

Like this first wine - the 2018 Chardonnay “Reserve” from Carneros, Napa Valley - is smooth, creamy and delicious. It was 💯 barrel fermented and aged sur lie. It has ripe papaya, tart pineapple, passion fruit, ripe pear, melon, vanilla and crème brûlée notes. It’s positively gulpable. 🙌🙌

Also, the 2019 Bella Flor, Rosé of Syrah (highlight), from Sonoma Coast offers a bouquet of florals, raspberry, orange peel, and strawberry notes. Perfect poolside sipper ☀️ It was whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented aged sur lie for 7 months adding richness and complexity.

The 2018 Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast was fermented in an open top, small vat, cold soaked with gentle punch downs. It has cherry preserves, strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb, also some cherry blossom, pepper, sage, cola, vanilla and clove. 👃 👄

Notre Vue Estate

Sparkling Rosé Syrah Blend 2019

Notre Vue Estate Winery Sparkling Rosé 2019, Chalk Hill, California

Pretty color of light orange.

Nose of earth, light strawberries, citrus, limes, grapefruits, light peaches, spices, river rocks and herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium size bubbles, and medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with strawberries, raspberries, spices, herbs, green apples, red grapefruits, limes and spices.

Medium plus on the finish with limes.

This is a very enjoyable Vintage Sparkling wine from Chalk Hill. A very nice GSM blend. Nicely balanced and refreshing.

Shows nice balance between the fruits and earth notes, although earthier than I expected. Showing mild complexity, tangy and refreshing.

Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.

I paired it with caviar, cheeses and crackers.

A blend of 52% Syrah, 32% Grenache and 16% Mourvedre. A very small production of only 180 cases.

13.1% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
