98 Points Tasting Panel

Co-fermented with 3-7% Roussanne and aged on the lees for 16 months, this spectacular smallproduction red opens up immediately with gorgeous blue floral tones on the nose and a hint at blueberry pastry. Velvety and rich; grilled meat and dark chocolate are a unique pair of first notes. White pepper surges on mid-palate, but the satin mouthfeel and fine acidity also portray a noble structure.

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2015 Syrah Annadel Gap Vineyard comes from a cooler, wetter site in Sonoma that’s planted to a mix of Rhône varieties and Pinot Noir. Smoky, meaty, white pepper, and herbal notes all emerge from the glass and it shows more floral notes as it sits in the glass. With medium to full body, impressive concentration, and a sappy, vibrant texture, it’s a terrific cool-climate Syrah to enjoy over the coming decade.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast

An estate wine that's 100% varietal, this is thick and unrelenting in concentration, with blackberry, black licorice, leather and smoky oak pleading for attention in equal measure. Rough and tumble power and intensity rule the day, with seasonings of coffee and cinnamon.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Annadel Gap Vineyard is a special place. Located between Mt. Hood and the Sonoma Mountains, our site is characterized by thick morning fog and strong afternoon winds. Alluvial, glacial, and sedimentary influences create a wide array of soil types.
Production Notes
The fruit was hand harvested at night. : Clones are 100 (38%), 877 (25%), 174 (25%) & Tablas Creek (12%). Clones were kept separate, hand sorted and fermented individually. 25%-50% whole cluster, co-fermented with 3-7% Roussanne, 5-6 days of cold soak, punch downs 1-3 times daily, 14 days on skins & basket pressed. Gravity fed into French oak (62% new). Aged 16 months on lees, gently fined and bottled unfiltered. 
Food Pairing Notes
It's a great companion to a rack of lamb, an herb-laden chicken-pot-pie or just by itself with a good book and a warm fire.
