($40) Saturated medium ruby. New World meets Old on the nose, combining a sappy sweetness of black raspberry fruit with notes of gunflint, leather, pepper and cigar ash. Thick but juicy in the mouth, with a distinctly saline quality and sneaky lift. Strong, bright fruit and aromatic black pepper carry through into the very long, fresh finish. Very impressive California syrah, from a superb vineyard for this variety. A retaste of a bottle I sampled last winter, and showing much more verve now.
