2012 Syrah, Sonoma Coast
Dark red cherries, plums, new leather, smoke and game explode from David Ramey's 2012 Syrah. Intense and voluptuous to the core, the 2012 should offer a long window of pure drinking pleasure. In 2012, the Syrah is pure raciness and intensity, especially next to the 2010s, which are much darker and more brooding. There is a lot to look forward to here.
