Ramey Rodger's Creek Syrah 2014
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
From the cooler edge of the Petaluma Gap, this is coharvested and cofermented with 10% Viognier, which gives it a lift on the midpalate. Smoky char, baked raspberry, leather and pepper highlight a complex, thickly concentrated experience of powerful grace and silky texture.
Has structure to spare, with a firm backbone of lively acidity and mineral-tinged tannins, framed by dark berry, dusty dried herb and spice flavors. Hands off for now. Best from 2019 through 2027. 587 cases made.
