Ramey Wine Cellars – 2014 – Syrah – Sonoma Coast
Laid-back Syrah… Just what I needed after a long day. Light, foggy, coastal fruit with that flirtatious ghostly edge. Something you need to just speak to you with light blueberry and caramel carousels. I sipped and just thought about the day, honestly, and I have this wine to credit for that. One of the few times where the wine made me forget about the wine– It ORDERED me to forget, just resign myself to the Now I was in. I heard the bottle’s dialogue sing and speak to me through light but convincing texture. It’s a song, a saunter, charm and atmosphere to itself. There was something there in that bottle, in that translation of Syrah, that calculated my consciousness and flew past and around my rationale with unusually understated but poignant dynamism and capability. After three sips I noticed a cherry-like subtle smatter but then it away skipped like a coquettishly phantasmic vixen. I kept sipping. I was done with my day and more relaxed than I could have measured.
