Issue: Issue 150
($150; 50% new oak) Full medium ruby. Smoked meat and gunflint on the nose; reminded me of a serious Hermitage. Then dense and brooding in the mouth, with a distinctly wild quality to its intense flavors of raspberry, smoked bacon and gravel. For all its size, this boasts terrific lift and grip, and an extravagant personality. Carrying 15% alcohol with a pH of 3.9. It's also the only wine in the cellar that isn't aged in essentially 100% new oak.

Aromas of tapenade, bacon fat, and scorched earth emerge from the 2007 Syrah Hudson Vineyard. The complex aromatics are followed by rich, thick flavors with elegance as well as good definition. There is slightly more minerality apparent in this full-bodied 2007 than in the 2008.
