Recently sampled this 2010 Adobe Road Wines syrah from the Kemp Vineyard in the Dry Creek Valley area of Sonoma County. This Sonoma County producer in Petaluma is led by Kevin Buckler, of TRG pro auto racing fame, along with his wife Debra, with Garrett Martin as their winemaker. This big and chewy rhone styled gem has a nose of ginger, lavender and Santa Rosa plum with flavors of cassis, licorice and dried rosemary. Get up to Nor Cal wine country and visit their new tasting room in Petaluma. Adobe Road also produces an excellent pinot noir, cab franc and cabernet sauvignon from Rutherford.
