Review

The 2015 Syrah Rodgers Creek Vineyard deftly balances fruit richness with the more savory, cold-climate notes that are typical of this site in the Petaluma Gap. Black cherry, cloves, new leather, licorice, spice and black pepper all run through this super-expressive, brooding Syrah. This is another wine in the range with terrific potential.

Review

As always, the 2015 Syrah Rodgers Creek Vineyard offers a bit more depth and structure than the Cole Creek. In this vintage, some of more savory varietal notes are attenuated by the richness of the fruit. Even so, all the elements are nicely balanced throughout. The 2015 is shaping up very nicely.
