2015 Peay Vineyards Les Titans Estate Syrah, Sonoma Coast
For those of you who have tried the 2015 La Bruma we released last spring, you are aware that the 2015 vintage made excellent Syrah. Currently the 2015 Les Titans is tightly wound but with some time in the bottle will release its grip and it can be immensely enjoyable right now with a decant. The nose has a smoky, bacon fat quality with black olive and herbal aromas that scream out for game or lamb (or the grilled pork chop I am eating while I write this note.) There is a little dried fig and blood on the palate that after 10 minutes of air becomes fresher revealing the braising liquid and meat aromas typical of this blend. The tannins are drying when first opened but after 10 minutes of air they soften and you can see how the wine will broaden and fatten with time in the bottle and the decanter. I would drink a bottle in the next few months after release and hide the rest for enjoyment for the next 5-20 years or longer.
