"A step up, the 2014 Syrah Rodgers Creek Vineyard is a blockbuster effort that reminds me of a good vintage of the Côte Rôtie La Mouline from Guigal. Awesome notes of incense, lavender, bacon fat, and spring flowers gives way to a full-bodied, voluptuous Syrah that has a sexy, seamless texture, sweet tannin, and a big finish. This cuvée saw 10% Viognier and is an exotic, intense, superstar of a Syrah readers should snatch up."

"This vineyard is a unique site, 250 metres up on the cooler side of Sonoma Mountain. It lies in the new Petaluma Gap AVA, on rocky, volcanic soils. The vintage was early, with harvest in early October, but it was a good one. This wine includes 10% Viognier, grown in the same vineyard and co-fermented. The result is very northern Rhone-like, with complex white pepper, lavender, and mint aromas, a savoury, structured character, and a texture approaching silk."

"The 2014 Syrah Rodger's Creek Vineyard is medium garnet-purple in color and reveals a very pretty perfume of kirsch, chocolate-covered cherries and mulberries with hints of potpourri, Provence herbs and fungi. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a beautiful velvety texture and wonderful freshness supporting the elegant perfumed layers, finishing on a compelling mineral note."

"From the cooler edge of the Petaluma Gap, this is coharvested and cofermented with 10% Viognier, which gives it a lift on the midpalate. Smoky char, baked raspberry, leather and pepper highlight a complex, thickly concentrated experience of powerful grace and silky texture."
