2010 Ramey Sonoma Coast Syrah

SKU #1138032 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blackberries, smoke, tar, game and incense emerge from the inky-hued 2010 Syrah. The 2010 has more varietal character and complexity than the 2009. All the best elements of the house style come together in this huge, structured Syrah. I only hope I have the chance to taste the 2010 with some bottle age, as it appears to have a very bright future. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030. Inner quote mark (4/2013)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky purple. Pungent dark berries, olive and smoky herbs on the nose and in the mouth. Weighty and palate-coating, with slow-mounting tannins and a late jolt of cracked pepper on the clinging finish. I also had a chance to re-taste the 2009 version of this wine; it's showing intense, textbook syrah character right now, with vibrant dark berry character and pronounced spiciness. There's a Rhone-like quality to it that I find quite interesting and while it's drinkable now, it's also balanced to age slowly. Inner quote mark (5/2013)

K&L Notes

Ramey's 2010 Sonoma Coast Syrah is sourced from three fine vineyards in diverse parts of the appelation. The majority of the fruit comes from the Shanel Vineyard (78%) which is on the warm, eastern side of Sonoma Mountain near the limit of the appelation. A portion from Rogers Creek typifies a savory, cool climate character. The Syrah grapes (including 25% whole clusters) were co-fermented with 5% Viognier. The wine then aged in 50% new French oak barrels for more than two years before bottling.
