Tondré Grapefield Syrah 2015

I love the nose on this: very complex; rare beef, iodine, eucalyptus, dark florals, rich gravelly scents, dark, oozing blackberry underneath it all. Dark, almost sweet minerality in the mouth, iodine, a saline note. Soft, rich, and mouthfilling. Some tannic structure, but it’s soft, and decent acidity. Length too. Very singular. — 4 months ago

As a birder I’d buy for the label alone

@Hugh O'Riordan - Second wine I’ve had from this bird label winery, and the second really good wine. Follow the bird!

Flocchini Vineyard Petaluma Gap Syrah

Read like really high quality new world syrah. Interesting to taste next to the sulfured version which read more old world. — 2 years ago

Medium yellow gold. Bracing, orange fruited, orange blossom, hint of pithy grapefruit, snappy nasturtium/peppery undertone. I feel the new world weight and breadth on the palate compared to the next wine.... — 2 years ago

Flocchini Vineyard Syrah 2012

Love the Focchini. A raw wine but should develop nicely. Beautiful plum aromas and tons of minerality. Big tannins on the finish. — 8 years ago


Three Creeks Vineyard - Bennett Valley Syrah 2014

Holding up very nicely. Could probably use a bit of decanting to open up with next bottle. Bold rich flavor and lots of pepper on the back end. — 2 years ago


Lester Family Vineyard Syrah 2014

Color of dark ruby, yet quite clear. Nose of vanilla, chocolate, a bit oak, and a bit strawberry. Taste is spicy, peppery, pure and round, dried strawberry, oak, a bit grassy, subtle and refined acidity, a bit salty bacon note, and low tannins. Aftertaste is smooth with more spicy note, oak, a bit plum and dates, a bit of mineral, and no edge savory. Only drawback is the nose, or she will be great. — 3 years ago
