Coastview Terraces Syrah Mini-Vertical

Enjoy a 3 bottle vertical of our Coastview Vineyard “Terraces” Syrah: 2016, 2015 & 2014.

When Bradley Brown first discovered the vineyard in 2007, he not only contracted with the owner to bud over blocks of Syrah to Grenache and Pinot noir, he also contracted to have the owner plant a special steeply terraced block to a special “Alban Baby Block” selection of Syrah paired with a rootstock he felt was ideal for the rocky soils. With each passing vintage, the vines are more fully expressing the complexity of this site and their pedigree. While evoking the classic signature terroir of the Coastview Vineyard, it is distinctly different with layers of complexity and aromatics that set it apart from the regular Coastview bottling.

2016: An alluring combination of deep black and purple fruits with savory roasted meats that is interwoven beautifully. A distinct crushed rock minerality rides just below the surface. On the palate, this wine is explosive with dense bramble berry fruit that hits the mid palate powerfully and then runs long. The granite soils of this vineyard promote high natural acidity. We fermented this wine with 2/3s whole clusters and nothing added to it. The tannins are fine and sappy. \nThis wine is just beginning to come together. With the depth of fruit, acidity and freshness this wine has now, one could expect it to age gracefully for at least two decades, with four to five years getting it closer to its sweet spot. 95 points- Antonio Galloni, Vinous; 94+ Points- Jeb Dunnuck; 93 pts and Cellar Selection- Matt Kettman, Wine Enthusiast

2015: The "Terraces" Syrah possesses a complex nose of black wildberries, baking spices, hints of roasted meats, pepper and anise. It is powerful and explosive on palate with a spicy and savage side revealing itself. It unfolds with layers of black fruit, baked plums, crushed rock, spices and savory roasted meats, and hints of anise and pepper. The finish is very long and penetrating. At this point, the tannins are still lively and granular, though with time, they will melt further into the wine. We expect this wine to be at its best from 2020 to 2030. 93 Points- Jeb Dunnuck, 92 points- Wine Enthusiast, Matt Kettman

2014: This wine has intensity, depth and sexiness written all over it. The nose is layered with notes of cigar box, anise and deep, perfumed floral red fruit. Explosive and dense on the palate while also being balanced and refined. A cornucopia of black and red fruits are framed by baking spice and notes of cigar box. And then comes the truly beautiful part - the finish just sails on for well over a minute revealing additional subtle layers. While drinking beautifully now, this wine will gain silky weight with time in the cellar. 93 Points- Antonio Galloni, Vinous
