Cep Vineyards 2018 Estate Syrah, Sonoma Coast, Sonoma Cty., CA, USA

Cep means vine stock in French. Cep Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay are made from barrels of wine that do not make it into one of the Peay wines. All the  blending for the Peay cuvées is done blind – without knowing the amount  each potential wine will make to keep the finance guy honest – so they  choose the wine that best expresses the cuvée and the vintage. After all  the wines for the vintage are put together, Vanessa will say we have X  extra barrels and they become Cep. They are delicious and at half the  price of Peay an incredible steal. 

Winemaker: Vanessa Wong

Farming: Organic

Varieties: Syrah

Terroir:  Cool climate, maritime vineyard site. Sandy loam soils. 

Vinification: All clones from single vineyards are tasted blindly out of barrel to create the best possible blend from the vineyard that expresses its terroir. Any wine that does not make it into the single-site bottlings goes into this Sonoma Coast blend.

Tasting Notes: Smoky, brooding and complex, this wine is everything Syrah should be! Somewhat different from Peay's estate wines, Cep wine is made for young approachability, and serves a strong introduction to the potential of cool-climate Syrah in California.
