Smells like street after a warm rain.. Lots of Ozone on this nose.

Black- berry/cherry/raspberry blend, heavy handed, yet soaring clean like these Cali wines do. Bitter at first, as if whole cluster fermented. Zingy acidity.
Enjoyable.

Yum yum in my tum. I have really enjoyed refined and focused Sonoma Coast syrah this year. They have better balance, lower alcohol, slightly more acidity - reminiscent of a great St Joseph or Cornas from Rhône. Slight of bacon fat and dried herbs, with dark cherry and black plum notes, backed by some soft funk.

Tight at open w some acidity and bramble. As it opened it revealed a beautiful blueberry/blackberry situation w really nice cocoa notes around a soft mid-palate. The tannic finish is subtle and soft but builds to a completely full tannic wash over you mouth. This was not the most layered wine but it was certainly nuanced which I think belies the quality with which it was made. Delicious.

Excellent nose with an herbal and game quality. Palate is classic pax with good fruit but a nice umami quality. Amazing value during the wind gap sell off.

Bright acidity and light tannic structure. Tart cherries, a hint of dark cocoa and wood bark. This is really nice.

Very light on it’s feet, this syrah exudes a fragrant floral nose with a silky palate of blue and black fruits. The alcohol is nearly imperceptible through the finish. Plush but not intoxicatingly so.
