2007 Icon Sonoma County- A modern field blend of cofermented Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane, Alicante, and mixed Blacks. 40% new wood. Big and leafy at first on the nose then turning dark and spicy with notes of carob, sweet dates, red plum pudding, cigarette ash, a touch of wood spice, flowers, boysenberries and just a touch of oystershell. Big yet silky in the mouth with a rush of dark fruits and big tannins over the mid-palate that leads to a spicy finish with notes of pumpkin pie spices, caramel and buttery cookie tones. This is a bit short on the finish and lacks the level of integration found on the Single Vineyards Zins at this point and should improve over the short term. 89pts
Heavy berry and spice on the nose, full-bodied and well-balanced. Delicious alone and with food.
smoky black cherry scent a bit sweet on the start, then dry dark chocolate and plum flavors
An amazing Sonoma Syrah. Not as dry as the Australian, and also a bit more fruity that the Aussie Shiraz. It has changed the way I think about Shiraz/Syrah grown in the States. Highly reccommend it!
($20) aromas of leather; on the palate smoky, tannic, black cherry, tannic, good value
Deep pigment, slightly tawny color. Cigar box on the nose. Well controlled tannins. The flavors are a bit hard to define. The spiciness of the Syrah comes out, though. Falls a little short on the finish.
36% Carignane, 27% Petite Sirah, 25% Zinfandel, 12% Mixed Blacks The wine is very dark and dense. It is fully aromatic with sweet fruit scents of black cherries and plums, accented by hints of toast, vanilla, black pepper, cardamom, and licorice. It is a big, mouth-filling wine, rich in the complexities of black raspberry and baking spices. It has supple, delicious intensity and weight in the long, flavorful finish. Built for the ages, this wine has classic Sonoma mixed black flavors. There is nothing else like it in the world.
1,000 cases produced.
Aged 21 months in French Oak.
