2019 Spring Release

 

Vineyard Profile

The Las Colinas Syrah is indicative of what is possible for cool-climate Syrah as it captures the essence of the western Sonoma Coast appellation. Élevage in 500-liter French oak puncheons helps to preserve fruit and spice, and affords graceful aging in the cellar. A select barrel blend from two top organically farmed, single-vineyard sites – Harrison Grade and Dusty Lane – a sultry inkiness and chewy fine tannin set the stage for present enjoyment or lay-down potential. Always a classic, the 2016 Las Colinas Syrah offers an elegant snapshot of Sonoma Coast Syrah.

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Las Colinas Sonoma Coast Syrah exhibits a youthful bouquet of ripe, dark fruit – blackberry, blueberry, and Japanese plum – which is charmingly confirmed on the palate. Further exploration yields violets intermingling with dried thyme, rosemary, and marjoram, along with a touch of young black peppercorn and olive tapenade. A savory hint of bacon adds intriguing complexity, while modest tannins and earthen components of black truffle and forest floor round out the palate.

Wine Reviews

January 2018 | (92-95) points

“The 2016 Syrah Las Colinas is gorgeous. Deep, sumptuous and beautifully layered, the 2016 is all class. Deep layers of red/purplish fruit, rose petal, lavender, spice and menthol infuse this sumptuous, resonant Syrah. All the elements fall into place in an effortless, impeccable wine endowed with tons of purity and myriad shades of nuance. This is such a beautiful wine. Fruit sources are Dusty Lane and Harrison Grade.”
