2020 las colinas bottle

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. For us, the 2020 vintage saw greater stem lignification across varietals early, and the fruit for Las Colinas was no different. Fermentation with 53% whole clusters enhanced the structure and savory elements of the 2020 Las Colinas, while retaining its telltale charisma and elegant approachability.

Tasting Notes

The 2020 Las Colinas Sonoma Coast Syrah opens with darker fruit notes of boysenberry, blueberry, and black cherry that charmingly balance a seductive underlying sauvage character. A sweet whisper of smoked cherry wood bacon follows the fruit, alongside hints of leather, espresso, and black olives. Slightly dusty, chewy tannins complement a lively acid backbone, making the 2020 Las Colinas ready for immediate enjoyment while also poised for graceful aging.
