2014 Syrah Fort Ross-Seaview Sonoma Coast
Fort Ross-Seaview Sonoma Coast
The 2014 Syrah is a beautiful expression of what a can be offered from our Cinghiale Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast. The 2014 vintage gave us plenty of sunshine, and the cool ocean breezes on the coast gave us plenty of hangtime in the vineyard. This resulted in a Syrah that bursts with deep, warm fruit expressions of blackberry and black cherry. But it wouldn’t be Sonoma Coast Syrah if it didn’t have the wonderful hints of anise, dried herbs, sweet spice, fresh earth, and even floral notes. The dark color gives clues to the full and beautiful mouthfeel of this wine. While it is certainly rich, the tannins are very nicely balanced and it finishes soft and smooth. Enjoy this wine now, or watch it evolve nicely in bottle for many years.
