La Bruma Syrah is the more lifted and aromatic of our two Estate Syrah. It often features floral notes of lavender and violets along with the ever-present core of zingy red fruits, mineral bass notes of graphite, and savory herbal accents. I find the profile more akin to an Hermitage Syrah than other parts of the northern Rhône. But, to be clear, La Bruma is decidedly a Peay Vineyards, West Sonoma Coast Syrah and is not trying to be anything, or anyone, else. And, lest you have not heard us say it before, we should state that cold climate Syrah - like Peay Syrah - is really the red wine you want to drink when you head to your cellar for something that pairs well with food. It has the flavor profile that plays well with a piece of red meat (iron, blood, red and black fruits, herbal notes, high acid) while also being light enough on its feet to complement tomato dishes, fowl, pork, and roasted vegetables. At least half the time we head to the cellar for a bottle of Pinot noir or Cabernet we emerge cradling a bottle of cold climate Syrah. It represents more than half of what we have in our cellars and may in yours, too, once you give in to it.

The 2020 Syrah La Bruma Sonoma Coast is ripe with lavender, boysenberry, pepper spice (but not pronounced), and a touch of iron richness. Full-bodied but not heavy, it has fine tannins, a good, elegant mouthfeel, and a long finish with a touch of black olive and turned earth. Drink 2024-2034.
