La Bruma Syrah is the more lifted and aromatic of the two Estate Syrah. It often features floral notes of lavender and violets along with the ever-present core of zingy red fruits, mineral bass notes of graphite, and savory herbal accents. I find the profile more akin to an Hermitage Syrah than other parts of the northern Rhône. But, to be clear, La Bruma is decidedly a Peay Vineyards, West Sonoma Coast Syrah and is not trying to be anything, or anyone, else. Fresh herb, white pepper, plum and dark fruit are balanced with fine acidity. A perfect example of cool climate Syrah at it's finest.
