2017 Westwood Syrah, Annadel Gap, Sonoma Valley
Situated in the gap in the northern Sonoma Valley, our Annadel Gap Vineyard is the perfect match for this Rhone varietal: cool foggy mornings are replaced by warm wind-swept afternoons. The heat of the Napa Valley to our east pulls the fog and moisture away from our vineyard and between the coastal and valley influences, our site allows for the perfect amount of diurnal temperature fluctuation. Savory and elegant, more than overripe and jammy, are hallmarks for Westwood. Aromas of smoked bacon, white pepper, and green olive with a refined tannin structure.
