IWC 90 Pts - Winemakers Notes - "Restraint, naturally high acidity, true Northern Rhone Syrah perfume, and silky tannins are important components in Red Car's 2010 Sonoma Coast Syrah along with native yeast fermentation, moderate stem inclusion and being aged in (83% neutral/ 17% new) French Oak for 12 months."
According to Christophe Convert, NapaCabs Wine Specialist - The Syrah 2010 Sonoma Coast is a lot like a Croze Hermitage, with notes of bacon fat and pepper on the nose. Dry on the palate with again aromatic of cured meat and bacon balanced by light fig and blackberry notes. A noticeable acid level and young tannins support the mouth feel and give this wines its liveliness. Fans of the northern Rhone Syrah pay attention, this is the most Croze-Hermitage like wine I have ever tasted coming out of California. 13.7% alcohol!
