The 2011 Wind Gap Sonoma Coast syrah is a great example of just how beautifully this grape can do in cooler climate vineyards in California. The bouquet is a majestically pure and vibrant melange of cassis, black raspberries, dark chocolate, black olives, a touch of pepper, venison, woodsmoke and a nice, classic note of syrah's medicinal in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and surprisingly plush on the attack for its low octane, with a great core of fruit, excellent complexity, moderate, ripe tannins and a very long, pure and palate-staining finish. This is a great, great bottle of syrah that harkens back stylistically to the northern RhOne days of yesteryear. 2014-2035. John Gilman, A View from the Cellar

Elegant, yet meaty. Low alc, but not thin. One of the better Wind Gap wines I've had.

one of my favorite domestic syrahs. opened this to compare to JL Chave St. Joseph. Wind Gap shows more obvious fruit, seems to have a bit more lush mouthfeel. love 'em both
