A blend from the Radio Coteau single vineyard Syrah sites, the Las Colinas showcases Cherry Camp's fruit purity, Timbervine's structure, and Dusty Lane's wild sauvage character. A cool-climate narrative for the Sonoma Coast Syrah enthusiast.
"The 2009 Syrah Las Colinas is marvelous. In this vintage, the Las Colinas has tremendous fruit density but perhaps a touch less in the way of varietal aromas and flavors. Still, it is impossible not to love the 2009 for its voluptuous personality and terrific overall balance. In 2009, the Colinas is all about fruit intensity."

"Glass-staining ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of blackberry, cassis and candied violet, with notes of white pepper and Asian spices adding complexity. Gains energy and red fruit character with air, picking up a strong raspberry quality to go along with its deeper dark fruits. The racy, minerally finish displays excellent clarity and length."
