Erik Nordman

Some dynamite Sonoma Coast Syrah from Wind Gap. Like a slightly more plush Saint-Joseph, in the best way; still has all that bright, savory high-toned Syrah goodness in spades, it's just that the fruit is a little more forward and polished and it's slightly more lush on the palate than most Northern Rhône examples. Translucent with a medium/medium (+) intensity ruby hue fading to a darker hot pink rim. Medium (+) concentration of aromatics of perfectly ripe blackberry and blueberry fruit, drying thyme, kalamata olive, violets, an almost smoky crushed gravel soil character, and a slightly leathery character. On the palate, there's more pure, ripe blackberry and blueberry, fresh thyme, fresh violets, a granitic minerality, and some slight gamy savoriness. Medium/medium (+) acid, very fine medium (+) intensity tannin, medium bodied and texturally soft. Alcohol is moderate and not at all intrusive. Some really impressive stuff and I'd love to see how this fares with a bit more bottle age in the future.

An absolutely beautiful, albeit light, expression of Syrah. 11.7% alcohol! 100 % whole cluster.
