Scott was a gracious and knowledgeable host during our recent visit to Wind Gap. Really enjoyed spending some time with him chilling outside the winery in the warm CA sun. Great conversation about the Sonoma wine scene and Wind Gap wines.

Flight 2 - Reds (3 notes)
2011 Wind Gap Wines Pinot Noir
Pretty and elegant nose full of cranberry and cherry with some interesting herb and stem notes. More red fruit on the palate with a generous earthy undertone of stems and herbs. Plenty of acidic cut and juiciness. Long herb and cranberry finish. Great stuff.
2010 Wind Gap Wines Syrah Sonoma Coast
Just a knock out nose ... black and red fruit, herbs, exotic spice, black olive, black pepper and game notes. Palate is silky and elegant with medium body. More red than black fruit though their is loads of pepper and olive going on. Loved this wine. Terrific.
Flight 3 - Bonus Wines (2 notes)
Scott brought out a couple of wines from a dinner he attended the night before in SF.
2010 Jemrose Syrah Cardiac Hill Bennett Valley
Inky black in appearance - very different from other wines it the line up. Nose explodes. Full throttle with smoky, herby, toasty, meaty, rich black fruit. Palate is rich and more fruit driven than the Wind Gap syrah. Loads of black fruit, olive, pepper and smoked meat. Long smoky finish. While larger scaled than the other more elegant wines, this is by no means a fruit monster. Well balanced and complex.
