Vineyard: Sourced from windswept, coastal vineyards perched on the rugged Sonoma Coast. These low-yielding vines bask in cool Pacific breezes and fog, resulting in intensely-flavored grapes with vibrant acidity.

Winemaking: A minimalist approach is employed to showcase the pure expression of the Syrah grape. The grapes undergo whole-cluster fermentation with native yeasts, followed by aging in a mix of French oak barrels, some new and some neutral.

Tasting Notes: Dive into a glass of this captivating Syrah and be greeted by aromas of black plum, blackberry, and wild blueberries tinged with hints of pepper, leather, and dried herbs. On the palate, the wine bursts with juicy dark fruit flavors, complemented by savory notes of earth, forest floor, and a touch of smoke. The acidity is bright and zesty, keeping the wine balanced and lifted. The tannins are fine and integrated, providing a velvety texture that leads to a long and satisfying finish.

Varietal: 100% Syrah

AVA: Sonoma Coast

Production: Limited

Alcohol: 13.5%

Overall: This Sonoma Coast Syrah is a testament to Red Car's dedication to terroir-driven wines. It's a complex and nuanced expression of Syrah, perfect for lovers of bold, yet elegant red wines. Pair it with grilled meats, hearty stews, or aged cheeses for a truly memorable dining experience.

Bonus: The 2019 vintage has received critical acclaim, earning 92 points from Vinous and praise for its "graceful and refined" character.
