Inky purple. Heady aromas of black raspberry, cola, sandalwood and potpourri. Distinctly exotic, with notes of patchouli and star anise coming up in the glass. Taut and focused on the palate, offering vibrant, spice-accented red and dark berry flavors and a strong jolt of cracked pepper. Closes sweet and long, with slow-building tannins and excellent clarity.

The 2010 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) bursts from the glass with explosive dark fruit, olives, black pepper, sage, rosemary and juniper berries. Rich, intense and generous, the 2010 is flat-out stunning. The 100% whole clusters are very nicely balanced in this vintage. Delicate, savory notes on the finish balance the exuberance of the fruit. There is no shortage of personality here. At $38 a bottle, Wind Gap’s Syrah is also one of the great values in wine. This is a terrific showing from proprietor Pax Mahle and Wind Gap. If readers can find a better Sonoma Coast Syrah for the money, I would like to know about it! The 2010 is a blend of fruit from Nellessen, Majik and Armagh. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2020.
