2016 Domaine de la Terre Rouges 'Les Cotes de L'Ouest' Syrah California 1.5L
Winemaker Notes: These vines are cultivated west (ouest) of the Terre Rouge winery on small, sandy loam hills (côtes) just outside the Amador County appellation, a few miles from the Mokelumne River. In the tradition of their other Syrahs, this wine has great flavor intensity and mouthfeel.
Wine Enthusiast - "Full bodied, deeply concentrated and massively structured, this wine is packed tight with just-ripe fruit, smoky spices, cloves and singed sage. A rich blanket of fine-grained tannins wraps those tightly, suggesting several years in the cellar for the wine to mature. Best from 2024. Editor's Choice."
Wine & Spirits - "The majority of this wine comes from a vineyard in the Clements Hills of Lodi, west of the Amador County line. Combined with fruit from the foothills, it makes a light and supple syrah with plenty of cracked-black-peppercorn spice. The blueberry and strawberry ripeness fills the wine’s tight, granitic tannins, lasting without any sense of excess weight."
