2019 Cep Vineyards Estate Syrah, Sonoma Coast
The 2019 Cep Syrah is another great Syrah, particularly when you consider the price. It is true to its cold climate Syrah roots with a quite appealing red berry driven nose with hints of iodine, olive, and juniper berries. The flavors in the mouth align with the nose adding blue fruits and some lamb shank jus aromas (herbs, meat reduction sauce, fat) with highlights of fruity pink peppercorn. The weight on the palate is medium and the flavors linger on the back palate on a fresh finish. The energy of the wine is vibrant making this a Syrah you can easily drink a bottle of and not feel slowed down.
