7/4/2015 - cartime Likes this wine: 90 points

Deep salmon color. Reticent nose with stone fruit and cherries. Green plum and white cherry palate with great acidity and earthy minerals. I wouldn't drink too cold -- 55 to 60 degrees is ideal. A very delicate wine. For pairing purposes, I'd conceptualize this as something between a white and a rosé with an emphasis on earthy, savory flavors.

6/20/2015 - La Cave d'Argent Likes this wine: 94 points

Intensely aromatic, this deep ruby wine serves up a bouquet of wild berries, white pepper, coriander, smoke and minerals. Medium-bodied, crisply acidic and with medium-weight, fine-grained tannins, it delivers similar flavors as for the nose and shows no sign of alcoholic heat. The flavors build in the middle and conclude with verve on the lengthy finish. Hedonistic yet structured, this one will provide pleasure for many more years. Drink now-2025.

Enjoyed this quite a bit; This has all the brambly red fruit and earthy tones of traditional Grenache, but has nice bright acidity and comes off as quite elegant on the palate

so well made. I had this on release and it really needed time. While it can continue to evolve this is so enjoyable right now. Steely minerality and just the right amount of acidity. Quince, honey, and pear on the palate

This was slightly austere when I tried it, with the fruit very restrained and the finish slightly astringent, although there still is plenty of acidity to suggest this isn't over the hill; Certainly not made in an overtly California style; Not really sure if this improves from here or not

This has rounded into form. Full for a Rose, with a good depth of flavor. I lean towards drink up but if a bottle was still around in a year it likely will be just as good.

Note: this wine was tasted during a large event. While the pour was generous enough to get a good read on the wine, it was not something I followed over several hours.

With all that out of the way, I loved this wine. It showed all the meaty, robust elements of Syrah, with deep fruit. It also had excellent framing tannins and acid balance. All in all it was completely put together, to a very surprising degree for such a young wine.

Agree with the notes below - juicy, blue fruited, whole cluster deliciousness. Just nowhere near ready, even on day two. Wait, wait, and wait some more on these.

Such a tropical trampoline with a panoply of nuances that lead up to piña colada; there's also stone, Japanese pear and honey suckle; during the long finish I get some candied lemon curd. A stunning middle palate to be had and ultimately saddened by this being the last vintage. Such a shame... such an ideal Chardonnay for those hot summer days. Ideal with Mediterranean chicken. Drink now - 2020.

A refreshing, crisp Chardonnay that is an amazing value. Light yellow in color, light in body, nose of grapefruit and saline. Bright citrus tastes of melon, pear, and lemon, with an energetic mineral finish. 12.25% alcohol (!). This could easily pass for a village wine from Burgundy or a Sonoma Coast white, which makes it all the more impressive that it comes from Paso Robles - and costs less than $30.

My oldest Wind Gap, I was very curious to try it. A bit disjointed at first, this improved with a few hours of air and showed a nice quintessential Syrah bouquet of herbs, meat, black olives and some caramelized oaky notes. Bright, lemony and nice to taste with a pleasing silkiness, but fairly one dimensional. Should hold but unlikely to improve.

David B's note frightened me off through the winter but now seeing summer almost here, what the hell, time to try one of these. I opened this yesterday, drank a glass and experienced it opening up. By the end of the glass y/day, some blue tones had filled in and added some palate, which was a bit austere on first opening. Not a big surprise but was glad to see the ox take a whack at it. As for today, it surely has the Wind Gap aromatics, which means plenty of whole cluster goodness--cracked herb stems, cooked meat and even some light florals. Today, the palate retains the juicy blueberry note I mentioned, reminding me of the 2006 vintage of this wine. This feature is really striking, as it's about as close to eating pure blueberry as I can recall in a syrah...like skin, seed, the whole package of blueberry fruit. For sure, there is still grip in this wine, showing a stony quality with medium weight. Good dollop of black olive shows up too with more air. Maybe one more day will tell more of the story but if that doesn't change, I would concur with David to give this time. It's evolving, if you believe his note and mine, but it will evolve on a longer curve. PS--there's zero oak and alcohol evident here. This is probably about as pure a juicy, blue fruited syrah as one will find.

This is my kind of Syrah: briny olives in a most savory package. There's plenty of fruit wrapped up in there, too, along with enough structure for an additional 3-5 years of aging. Just great with grilled venison chops.

It looks to me that the bottle of one year ago had some storage issue. While not as impressive as when younger, this bottle showed well with a creamy consistency, light lemon, custard, and pear with pleasant acidity and a moderately long finish.
