2013 Syrah, Rodgers Creek Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW
Co-fermented with 10% Viognier, the 2013 Syrah Rodgers Creek Vineyard has a medium garnet color and notes of jasmine and lavender over a black pepper and tar cor, with fruit notes of blackberries and black raspberries. The medium-bodied palate is earthy/savory in character, with a solid frame of chewy tannins and plenty of spice layers on the finish.
