Wine from Farley

When Matt and I went to Sonoma, Farley was kind enough to come down from the mountain and meet us halfway between Sonoma and the Bay Area. She also brought us a few bottles of wine as a housewarming gift as we had just closed on our house. We finally found a night we though would be great to drink the half bottle of Clos LaChance 2003 Central Coast Syrah. We were just looking for a glass of wine each last night and this fit the bill perfectly!

The bottle had a real cork closure and clocked in at 14.5% alcohol by volume. You’ll have to go ask Farley where you can find this wine as there seems to be no info online about it!

On the nose I found roasted meat, blackberries, clove cigarettes, and smoke. The nose was very complex and Matt managed to drink most of his glass and was eying mine while I still had my nose in mine. Needless to say I thwarted his attempts for the greater good of the blog so I could give my impressions to you! 😉

In the mouth there was black cherry, blackberry, and cracked pepper. The wine was round and smooth on the palate but had a kick at the end. I really enjoyed this little bottle of wine and was glad to get the chance to try it, despite Matt’s best efforts to snag my glass!

  1. Thanks for fending off Matt for the sake of the blog (those jujitsu classes are paying off!) Another reminder for me of a wine I’ve been wanting to try. Thanks for the great notes.

  2. So funny. I just did a lot of unpacking and opened this same bottle, before I read your post…

    Glad you liked it.

  3. Orion, this is definitely one worth seeking out.

    Farley, great minds think alike 🙂
