Piedrasassi Central Coast Syrah PS, California, USA 2014


"California needs more of these kinds of wines! Buy this beauty by the case." - The Wine Advocate

This is a stunning bottle of wine just to look at and hold (you could imagine a pirate pulling out the cork with his teeth and spitting it at the tavern cat), but the contents are just as beautiful as the exterior. Very much a Syrah, not a Shiraz, and one of the most profound examples we have tasted from California and certainly the best by far at this price. It really isn’t expensive for the quality and if you like Cote-Rotie or Cornas, but with a few bonus hours of sunshine, then this is not to be missed. There’s an abundance of shiny black berries, violets, blueberries, black pepper and a hint of bacon fat, but nothing feels overdone or superfluous and the sweetly succulent acidity holds everything together. The 2013 vintage sold out at record speed, so if you have followed this wine in the past or are tempted to give it a whirl in this new vintage, then please make your interest known as soon as possible, because we only have a very limited amount. Piedrasassi haven't produced any of their highly-collectible, join-the-waiting-list, single-vineyard 'Rimrock' Syrah in 2014, so all of the amazing fruit that used to go into that ultra-premium wine is all in here! 14% alc. Drink now-2025.

Press review:

Jancis Robinson.com (Tamlyn Currin): "Meaty and herbal, seductive aromas of tarragon and ripe blackberries. Real purity of dark fruit with a swirl of wood smoke and charred rosemary. Hint of carpaccio. Fresh, long, mouth-watering finish laced with pepper. Very very good. Rhône elegance, California sunshine. Drink 2017-2021." 17 points
