Westwood Annadel Gap Vineyard Syrah 2014
“I couldn't find the sports car of my dreams, so I built it myself.” -- Ferdinand Porsche
Arguably, this is exactly what owner Carl Stanton did with Westwood. 95 POINTS! Also…consultant David Ramey! You’ve heard us call him the “grape whisperer” and “the winemaker's winemaker” and boy, can you taste it here. This 95-POINT, biodynamically grown Syrah from the Annadel Gap vineyard in Sonoma is KICKING! THE PRICE, too, is the best you’ll ever see BY FAR...c’mon! 50% OFF!
The legendary Philippe Melka is actually the current winemaker, but David consulted on this vintage. And it is a LEVIATHAN, a wildly complex and crazy-delicious wine...WOW!! David is a master with his own Syrahs, of course (Google HIS scores!) and you can taste it here. MY GOD, can you! Leather, blackberry liqueur, citrus, smoke, perfume, incense. And that’s just the beginning!! This will morph and develop in your glass, you can practically watch it happen. Deep and long and layered, it is simply NUTTY to see a wine like this priced anything like we have it.
Only one bummer! There’s not a lot! While it lasts…!

“This is a multi-clone expression of a single vineyard with a touch of Roussanne added for a floral lift. Orange blossom, lilac and heather notes were gorgeous. The aromas on the nose were earth-toned, with cherrywood, licorice and deep, dark chocolate. Creamy and richly punctuated, the coffee-mocha-cherry effect was slurpily juicy with a tilled-soil bottom. Acidity is striking and palate cleansing, readying for the next sip which ultimately leads to violets, blueberries and sweet plums. Seriously smitten.”
compote with weight; finishes with silkiness and superb lift.
