Winemaker's Notes

Wines Spots Sonoma Coast Syrah is a cool climate Syrah with lush blue fruit, cassis, hints of white pepper & herbs with fine tannins. An elegant wine with a long spicy finish. Rhone-like white pepper & spice with California intensity.

This wine is from two cool climate vineyards that are sustainably farmed on Sonoma Coast, which bring intensity of flavor balanced by bright acidity. Maturing our Syrah in 100% neutral French oak allows purity of site and varietal to show through. We added a light touch of Grenache.

Medium red brick color; very nice flavors spicy with plum, tart black fruit, and charcoal on the palate. Very smooth, resolved tannins, medium long finish, really delicious! This Syrah was a good food pairing with grilled steak.

Northern Rhone flavored fruit meets California intensity. A really lovely California Syrah. It has nice blue and red berry fruit, elegant entry, fine tannins, with the superb cool-climate fruit. Nice white pepper finish.

Lush fruit matched with peppery notes and a lengthy finish make this a complex and satisfying syrah. Plenty of ripe cherry and black plum flavors and more spice on the finish. Very nice wine.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
