International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 159

(70% syrah and 30% mourvedre): Opaque purple. Wild, expressive aromas of dark berries, cherry-cola, candied licorice, woodsmoke and Indian spices. Sappy and expansive, with excellent clarity and depth, and a seamless character, to its sweet blackberry and mulberry flavors. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with superb energy and lingering sweetness.

The 2009 Booker Vineyard is 70% Syrah and 30% Mourvedre from one of the rockiest, steepest hillsides in Paso Robles. Layers of dark fruit, spices, tar and licorice emerge from the glass in this deep, sensual wine. Booker usually sees the highest percentage of new oak, and elements of spiciness come through on the finish, although some of the oakiness blows off with time in the glass. Booker is another site Smith planted and continues to pull fruit from, in this case three blocks of Syrah and one of Mourvedre. In 2009 there were two lots; the first 100% Syrah vinified with 20-25% stems, the second a Syrah/Mourvedre co-ferment. Both lots were blended for the finished wine. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Another rather muscular 2009 from Saxum, yet for all its firmness and density there's a purity of flavor, focus and persistence, gaining minerally yet driven by the tight boysenberry, black berry and wild berry fruit, ending with gripping tannins that make it all the more exciting. Syrah and Mourvedre.
