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.
The first nose of the 2015 Las Colinas Syrah brings blueberry, blackberry, and a hint of sweet cherry to mind, which is further reinforced when quaffed. A small trace of fig on the palate completes the tour de fruit as earthier aromas are invoked. Complementing the strong fruit character, an equally vocal mineral tone of crushed rock is not to be ignored. As the wine develops, fresh thyme and rosemary mingle with allspice and cracked black peppercorns. A chiseled, lithe texture partners seamlessly with firm, savoury tannin.
