Sonoma Hillsides Syrah 2016

I've seen a fair amount of hype about this wine, but on night one, I was struggling to discover what all the fuss was about. Night two was a different story. The wine was much more open, with layers of fruit rolling slowly and luxuriously across the tongue. I think I'll save a small glass for day three to see what happens. — 6 days ago

Coryelle Fields Syrah 2013

30m decant. I found this underwhelming. Nice fruit and olives on the nose. Salinity and light herbs with good structure on the palette. Paired nicely to roast duck. Just no surprise or wow. — 3 days ago

Great work Steve and TRB. Only the second wine we have tried from Riverain.

Deep and dark purplish red. Lovely nose with some toasted elements with some black and white pepper, black olives, black cherries and cinnamon. Medium plus tannins (6.5/10) and full bodied. Very dry with flavors of dark berries, spices, olives, and light minerality. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2024.

Carlisle Winery & Vineyards

Sonoma County Syrah

In Ames for a weekend with our senior and a little Big12/SEC Hoops Challenge. Go Cyclones! These appellation wines from Carlisle are a ridiculous value. Didn’t have a decanter so we popped the top and and had a cocktail while it opened a bit. Opaque, nearly black in the glass with a wafting nose of blackberry jam. The nose was a little ‘boozy’ to me but it only weighs in at 14.2% ABV. Massive on the palate, again with the blackberries and what my wife describes as ‘meaty’. Game? This one will age beautifully if you can resist. A beautiful finish accompanied a nice meal and a great start to the final weekend of January. Cheers! — 22 days ago

Sonoma Coast Syrah 2015

A very young wine that shows great varietal character. Really opens up with an hour decant. This will improve with a few more years in the bottle but also a nice fresh wine if you’re thirsty now. — 3 days ago

My first Peay Syrah. Thanks to Brent for sharing. Nice balanced wine - not a jammy fruit bomb, but not without some weight. — 13 days ago

This is off the charts phenomenal. Spice, pepper, dark fruit. Very herbaceous. Just lovely. Far too young to enjoy this one fully but couldn’t wait... — 2 hours ago
