2010 Syrah, Sonoma Coast
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
The 2010 Syrah Sonoma Coast, which is co-fermented with 6% Viognier, reminds me of a French Cote Rotie. The brilliant aromatics include black raspberries, licorice, incense, lychee and spring flowers. Dense, rich and full-bodied with beautiful balance, superb purity and a provocative flavor profile, it can be enjoyed now and over the next decade.
