The 2018 County Line Sonoma Coast Syrah highlights the casual sophistication of cooler-climate Syrah. Vibrant young blueberry and fresh black plum are first identified, intertwined with a dab of fig compote. Savory rosemary and thyme weave throughout, along with a touch of sal secco black olives, adding a hint of salinity. Mushroom notes further this umami character, while newly-turned earth adds complexity to the bramble fruit that carries this wine from start to finish. Braised short ribs or a hearty ratatouille would be a fitting accompaniment to this lively, approachable Syrah.
