($80; 100% syrah) Red-ruby. High-toned aromas of crushed wild cherry, pepper, dill, woodsmoke and black olive. Dense, lively and aromatic in the mouth, with dominant flavors of pepper and tapenade. This has a delicacy of texture that reminded me of a Saint-Joseph from granite, and plenty of energy and lift. Fans of fuller-bodied California syrahs may be put off by the wine's penetrating quality.

The more approachable cousin to the Scheria also farmed from the famed Hudson Vineyard is produced from 2/3 whole clusters for the first time which seems to add some structure to the softer fruit of the previous vintage.

A pretty soft lilac and spice scented nose. The palate is dark and intense with lots of body; meaty on the finish with hints of coffee and smoke.

About This Producer


The Scholium Project, made by Abe Schoener, pushes the envelope of expectation in wines, producing esoteric varieties from somewhat obscure vineyards througout northern California. Schoener, who completed his graduate work in Ancient Greek Philosophy, concentrated on Homer. His label's name translates to "school, schooling" from Greek, and signifies an undertaking for the sake of learning, paralleling his winemaking journey. Schoener took a sabbatical from teaching in 1998 to work as an intern at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars in Napa Valley before moving on to work in the cellars of Luna. He then began the Scholium Project in 2004, entitling wines using proprietary names rather than varieties. In the cellar, Schoener allows his wines to take their own natural course by leaving them undisturbed in the barrel, not sulfuring or topping off - instead he allows the fermentation to develop a ripeness particular to wine, not fruit. Scholium Project wines are extremely limited in production.
