2014 Syrah, Cole Creek Vineyard, Russian River Valley
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Syrah Cole Creek Vineyard has a nose of warm blueberries and plums with underlying baking spice, black pepper and tar hints. Medium-bodied, the palate of this tank sample is already open for business, with plenty of expressive black fruit, spice characters and velvety tannins, finishing with great persistence.
