Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 184

No wimpy wine, the 2006 Bone Rock James Berry Vineyard (76% Syrah, 18% Mourvedre, and 6% Grenache) has over 16% alcohol. It possesses phenomenal texture, stunning purity, and remarkable freshness, which, again, is attributable to the limestone soils as well as the proprietor's brilliant hands-off winemaking philosophy. A complex perfume of roasted meats, black fruits, spring flowers, charcoal, and spice is followed by a wine of enormous richness (yet it is neither overweight nor heavy). Beautiful freshness permeates the wine's black fruit flavors and full-bodied power and length. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. This 2006 should evolve for 12-15+ years.

A tasty mouthful of Syrah, this is full-bodied and concentrated, rich and plush, with layers of ripe blackberry, wild berry, mineral and graphite, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps repeating the dark berry themes. Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache.

Deep dark purple. Dark fruit, spice and camphor. Bold fruit taste, strong tannin. Long finish but needs more time to develop complexity.

First bottle of this was 98pts. This one was identical upon opening. However after four hours of air and at room temp it felt too hot and disjointed. Put it in the fridge for 30 min, that helped but not quite what I was exptecting. 93?

BDF notes: Wineaggedon I (not an entrant). My favorite wine of the night. Huge alcohol, massive nose, complicated, chewy, dense, and challenging. Really enjoyed this.
