Bright ruby-red. Captivating aromas of raspberry, smoked meat, cinnamon, black olive, black pepper, lilac and violet. Quite tight on the palate today, with a sweet/tart impression to the flavors of red fruits, meat and pepper. This very savory, firm, varietally accurate syrah will need time in bottle to harmonize and will merit an even higher score if it develops more flesh and sweetness.

Darker and smokier, with more black fruit, tapenade and salted beef-like qualities, the 2009 Syrah (100% Syrah fermented with 30% whole-cluster and aged for 18 months in 10% new French oak) is medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured and concentrated, with superb purity of fruit. Another handful of years in the cellar are warranted here and it will drink nicely through 2021. Drink 2015-2021.

A supple and vibrant red, redolent of black olive and wet stone, with a focused core of blackberry and subtle spice flavors. This offers depth and intensity without excess weight.
