($55; a selection of fruit from Coccinelle Vineyard, vinified with a portion of its stems; 14.5% alcohol) Saturated full ruby. Blackberry, flint, pepper, spice and violet on the perfumed nose; has the rawness of young Northern Rhone syrah. Dense and spicy in the mouth, with superb flavor intensity and good verve. At once broad and focused, and far fresher than a syrah with a pH of 4.1 has any right to be. The firm tannins (and the inclusion of some stems) provide structural support. Finishes long and ripe, with a suggestion of roasted nuts. The most promising syrah I've tasted to date from Washington, in the style of an Hermitage.

Ripe, generous and distinctive for the herbal, soapy grace notes swirling around the rich black cherry and mineral flavors, echoing enticingly on the open-grained finish.
