Sonoma County Syrah

Wind Gap Wines

Nellessen Vineyard Syrah 2016

Outrageously loud nose. Green peppercorn, spicy beef jerky, powdered rock dust, tangy red berries behind all that. Balanced and full of flavor, there’s nice acidity lifting flavors of crushed rocky minerals. There is something like dried red berries - almost Christmas-spiced- that turn savory as the finish progresses. Tannins almost fully resolved and soft. Fascinating. — 17 days ago

Mounts Vineyard Syrah 2001

Dark fruits rich, shows some oak, but also a little too much heat in the medium-long finish, very good Syrah. — 2 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. — 20 days 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.

Pax Mahle Wines

Castelli-Knight Ranch Syrah 2013

Enjoying savory wines in the last moments of colder weather here in the Midwest. This is in a perfect spot, maybe peak. Smoked meat, herbs, balsamic, and faint dark fruits. Silky smooth. — 23 days ago

Sonoma County White Blend 2019

Malvasia, Tocai Friuli, and Chardonnay blend that has become an old and trusted friend over the past few years. The 2019 is medium gold, bit higher ABV than past vintages at 14.1, and the weight on the palate is considerable though lively and not cloying. Round, sweet, juicy fruit with notes of melon, peach, and lychee dominate, but there’s a hint of funky shroomy bottom that balances things out before the creamy, lengthy finish. I’m so happy that these Cal-Ital blends are gaining a foothold in the New World. This wine rocks with Mediterranean cuisine like lamb/chicken Kabobs with dilled herby rice and creamy hummus. Solid QPR and I’m finding that as summer finally sneaks in, I’m popping more and more white table blends. — 7 days ago
