Donelan 2011 Cuvée Keltie Syrah (Sonoma County)

Editors' Choice

The winery's prowess in blending fruit from distinct sites shows through with this 100% Syrah, a high proportion of which was whole-cluster fermented. Hedonistic streaks of pepper hit the nose first before developed layers of peppery cherry and blueberry pique the palate. Given an extra year in bottle after extended time in barrel, it balances smoky chocolate richness against vibrant acidity and silky mouthfeel. Virginie Boone
