2007 Syrah, Sonoma Coast
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
February 1, 2010
The 2007 Syrah Sonoma Coast, which is co-fermented with 7% Viognier, boasts huge aromatics of tapenade, bacon fat, pepper, black currants, and hints of lychee nuts and marmalade (no doubt from the Viognier). Inky/purple-colored, dense, full-bodied, and impressive, this is a top-flight Syrah that should drink beautifully for a decade.
