  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($115) Inky black-ruby. High-pitched, assertive aromas of blackberry, cassis, raw meat and cracked pepper, with a strong note of candied licorice. Bright and brisk on the palate, but with plenty of weight and texture. Intense flavors of kirsch and roasted coffee. Deep, powerful and heavily extracted on the long, supple finish.

    Notions of melted tar, blackberries, liquid minerals, and charcoal emerge from the inky/purple-colored 2003 Syrah Hickinbotham Vineyard. Revealing a meaty richness along with great concentration, length, purity, and definition, it is a tour de force in winemaking. This amazing Syrah should age effortlessly for two decades.

    Ripe in flavor, with a tangy balance to the plum and berry flavors, mingling with touches of pepper and citrus as the finish persists impressively. 900 cases made.

  • Self | Rating:

    Tasted in 2006. Too young still. Tannins very overpowering. There is clearly huge potential, but this wine must remain put at least until 2009/10 before it is tried again.
