Game, tobacco, black olives, savory herbs and incense all take shape as the 2010 Kingpin Rows (Syrah) shows off its considerable depth and pedigree. Another dark, virtually impenetrable wine, the 2010 is also going to need a few years to settle down. An intense, mineral-infused finish laced with chocolate, grilled herbs, spices and tobacco finds support from the serious, imposing tannins. Kingpin Rows is 100% Syrah from Pelkan Ranch in Knights Valley. Sadly, 2010 is the last Kingpin Rows, as Keplinger lost access to the fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

This well-proportioned red is focused on ripe, juicy dark berry, with touches of dark chocolate, cedar, crushed rock and dried herb. Very tightly wound, but gains on the finish, where the depth and concentration are more evident.
