K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Our pride & joy, this 100% Syrah remains a staple in the finest restaurants of the world and a favorite of sommeliers for its classic structure, flavor profile and plain deliciousness. These three spectacular sites are all delicious on their own as you probably well know, but for whatever majikal witchcraft always create a deeper and more complete wine when blended together. This 2015 will rank up there as one of the best yet. Black from the center to the deep purple edges, this is unmistakably Syrah. Dark spice and exotic flowers highlight the deep blue and red fruit. The palate shows the fruit of Nellessen immediately with subtle black pepper and silky concentrated fruit. It isn’t until later that you get the firm black fruit tannin and intense iron and game from the Armagh Vineyard and the smoky incense sexuality of the Majik Vineyard."

    This has lovely aromatic interest and stemmy spice on the nose that always gets me going. At this drinking stage, I don't see the oversized scale and tannin that the Galloni review suggests... it's deceptively medium-bodied on the savory, dark-fruited, and detailed profile. A measure of restraint in the ripeness and winemaking make this Syrah pleasant to sip but the juicy acidity makes it particularly versatile with food. A beastly red meat dinner isn't a prerequisite here, but you might feel inspired.

    My personal favorite wine we bought from Wind Gap in this latest run of ludicrous deals - The 2015 Sonoma Coast Syrah illustrates just how good Pax Mahle is at crafting cool climate Syrah. If you need anymore proof...Vinous dropped a perfect 100 point score for another of Pax's Sonoma Syrahs earlier this year! Due to historically low yields in 2015, this bottling contains the fruit that typically goes into single vineyard designates for $45+. Combine that with our 50+% discount off the original SRP of $36 and this is another not-to-be-missed opportunity to stock up on a highly rated wine for a budget friendly price point. Lifted aromatics of dark forest berries, black peppercorns, rose petals and smoked meat. Medium plus bodied with lovely fruit, tannin, acid balance. Effortless poise and composure, every element clicks. This wine certainly has the stuffing to go 10 years...but I think it's drinking beautifully right now and will be serving some up to friends and family this holiday season for sure. Enjoy!

    Spending several years in Sonoma County, Wind Gap hold a special place in my heart, as it was a tasting room me and my friends would frequent in the Barlow in Sebastopol. So seeing it at K&L and at such an outstanding value makes me happy. I've always been a firm believer that cooler climate syrahs is the way to go, and the Sonoma Coast from Wind Gap showcases this beautifully. Perfect with steak (of course) yet I really don't mind drinking this sans food. Worth a whirl, for the California wine lover.
