Winery Notes:

The 2018 growing season proved ideal for our coastal Syrah; cool, moderate and consistent. Hand harvested in mid-October, fruit for Our Sonoma Coast Syrah bottling is composed of multiple clones, all fermented separately in small open top tanks. Utilizing moderate stem inclusion, gas & gravity flow, our wines were aged in 500L puncheons on lees for 15 months. Differing from our single vineyard bottling, the Sonoma Coast is a marriage of different clones, oak, and stem inclusion in an effort to showcase what our appellation has to offer. In the pursuit of harmony, we have crafted a wine of poise and character, representative of our unique area and worthy of aging.

Taste: Cedar, Black Pepper, Tobacco

This impressive wine is inviting in floral notes of violet and lavender, while also being pretty on the palate. White pepper adorns a lengthy thread of tangy red fruit, game and well-integrated oak; the wine is balanced in acidity.

The 2018 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is a rich, generous wine for Red Car. Inky red/purplish berry fruit, rose petal, spice and licorice are all kicked up in this inviting, beautifully textured Syrah. The Sonoma Coast bottling is blended from some of the riper lots on the Estate, and that bit of extra richness is what drives its personality and overall balance.
