Sonoma County Syrah

Chateau St. Jean

Benoist Ranch Single Vineyard Sonoma Coast Syrah 2013

Very very close to the color of squid ink.

Lovely is a barnyard nose from a bottle of Syrah.
Heavy bodied, hefty. Black currant, arugula, dark dehydrated plums, chocolate mint.
A slurry of unique flavors, with a honed, focused acidity straight through the back end, and into oblivion.

I love this producer. Great value.

Clary Ranch Syrah 2015

Wow. The nose is a dead ringer for Cornas. And then the palate totally delivers also. Not quite as rich and dense as an equally young N. Rhône, but man is this amazing. Fresh and light but complex and interesting. A real pleasure. I was stunned. — 20 days ago

High toned, red fruit, a bit of dark berry, acid, tree bark, forest floor, tar, funky in a good way, aged perfectly. Dare I say Chave-ish? Got this for a steal. Will buy more immediately. — 8 days ago

Sonoma Coast - Estate Grown Syrah 2016

Mosquito-veinous blood-red color. Smells lovely. Herbal tonic and mixed elderberry-blackberry jelly. Bit of tart cherry as well. Also rosehip tea. Flavor is meaty and savory. Black olives, under-ripe cherries and something sanguine. Hint of light roast cold brew coffee. Hint of hard-candy licorice sweet at the end. This is lovely CA Syrah. Drinking spectacularly. — 9 days ago

Russian River Valley Syrah 2015

A deliciously restrained syrah of menthol, stewed plums, a hint of smoky meat, and just enough tannin to give it a smooth, but lasting grip... — 4 days ago
