- Vinous, Antonio Galloni: ?The 2016 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is powerful and gamy, reflecting the personality of this cool site in the Petaluma Gap. Iron, smoke, tobacco, cedar, menthol and dried herbs give tremendous aromatic complexity. On the palate, though, the wine is a bit compact and also reduced. It will be interesting to see if time in bottle helps it find better balance.?
- 94 Punkte View from the Cellar, John Gilman: ?Model Farm was the most pleasant surprise of all the new wines I tasted last year for this report ... The first vintage here was the 2014, and the couple?s 2016 Syrah is another stellar, low octane beauty, coming in at 12.75 percent octane and delivering a gorgeous young bouquet of cassis, black raspberries, smoked meats, a touch of coffee bean, pepper, complex soil tones, a bit of eucalyptus (as well as other, more exotic botanicals) and a topnote of bonfires. On the palate the wine is medium-full, pure and beautifully soil-driven, with a good core, superb intensity of flavor, well-measured tannins and a very long, nascently complex and vibrant finish. This has beautiful fruit, but the backend is driven by its intense minerality and this characteristic augurs superbly well for its future greatness, but give it some hibernation time to blossom. Low fat and absolutely stellar syrah! 2024-2060. 94.?

|Notizen des Weinguts:||Inspired by the industrious small vignerons of the Northern Rhone and captivated by their wines, we began our journey in search of cool climate Syrah. We were immediately drawn to the Petaluma Gap. The cold foggy mornings, a few fleeting hours of late day sun, and namesake consistent wind (reminiscent of the Mistral) are ideal. Now, after countless hours spent in the vineyard, we have come to know and love this daily rhythm and have an even greater appreciation for how unique this area really is.|
