Showing similar to the '08 with its focus and precision the 2009 Wind Gap Wines Syrah Sonoma Coast delivers a gamey array of cool-climate Syrah fruit intermixed with loads of pepper mineral and smoked meats. This medium body juicy and beautifully pure and fresh Syrah opens up in the glass has fantastic focus and solid length on the finish. It should be given 2-3 years of bottle age and then consumed over the following decade.

Explosively perfumed bouquet of red and dark berry preserves potpourri and Indian spices with a smoky undertone. Supple gently sweet dark berry flavors provide impressive palate coverage and gain spiciness with air. Plenty of energy on the sweet spicy finish.

It boasts gorgeous richness and depth in its fruit in a suave style that is undeniably appealing. Plums black cherries savory herbs tapenade and licorice flow from this juicy fleshy Syrah. The 2009 shows quite a bit more varietal character than the 2008. The vineyard sources are the same except that Clary Ranch accounts for 50% of the fruit in the 2009 and only 30% in the 2008. The 2009 was made with 100% whole clusters and spent 18 months in neutral oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. 91+ -Antonio Galloni
