2012 Syrah, Rodgers Creek Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
As with the ’14, the 2012 Syrah Rodgers Creek Vineyard saw a whopping 10% Viognier. It’s still young and offers a sensational perfume of currants, smoked meats, olives, spices, and crushed flowers. It’s a full-bodied, rounded, voluptuous beauty that has no hard edges, a flamboyant, sexy personality, and a great finish. Count me as a fan. It will continue drinking beautifully for another decade or more.
