Review

Ramey's Syrahs improve year to year. The Sonoma Coast is aromatic and full bodied; a fairly rich wine with good balance, and a very long, crisp, lightly oaky finish. It tastes of black currant, raspberry, spicy oak, toast, black licorice, and plum jam. Excellent. 7% Viognier (co-fermented). Aged 24 months in new French oak barrels. Unfiltered. [2013-2016]
