91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009

($25) Bright violet color. Black fruits, cherry and minerals on the nose, along with a strong floral undertone. Supple black raspberry and cassis flavors are complemented by violet pastille and mineral nuances, with silky tannins lending support. The fruit gains strength with air and carries through a strikingly pure and persistent finish. This became more powerful with air while maintaining vibrancy, suggesting that it will repay patience.

Very deep
by Gray13770022
Wonderful nose and beautiful finish for this bold and deep Syrah. I have now enjoyed two of the three bottles of Sonoma Coast, but will age the Estate bottles a few years. This wine must breathe a minimum of four hours and just gets better as the evening goes along.
Whoa - this is powerful stuff

I am still developing a palate for, and honing my appreciation of Syrah. But this was a terrific example of the varietal, in all its full-throttled glory. It was even better the second day, which makes me wonder if I should have decanted. I initially had it with a variety of grilled items, but it worked well with slow-roasted meats too. I plan to leave my remaining bottles alone for a while and see what develops. I am impressed with Stephen Singer's efforts. Many years ago I bought wines from Singer & Foy in the North Beach area of SF; his offerings and advice helped stimulate and feed my curiosity about wine that continues to this day. Thanks - I'm still tasting and learning!
first rate!

About California

It is remarkable that an industry essentially less than a half-century old could capture the attention of the American wine-buying public to the degree that California has. Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...

Varietal Image

While the grape is currently grown throughout the world, the most elegant Syrahs still come from the Northern Rhone valley, particularly the appellations of Côte Rôtie, Cornas, and Hermitage. Here, steep, terraced vineyards help produce full-bodied, intense, tannic wines loaded with white pepper and red fruit. In the vineyard, Syrah is largely cooperative- vines are productive, but not overly vigorous. Skins are thick, helping the grape...
