    Layers of black fruit jump from the glass in the 2010 Syrah Sierra Mar Vineyard. This is an especially vinous, perfumed Syrah that stands out for its forward juiciness and hugely appealing personality. Frankly, it is hard to put the glass down. The 2010 is the first vintage from a site in the Santa Lucia Highlands developed by Gary Franscioni and planted with Alban clones that is already proving to be a source of remarkable, expressive wines. With time in the glass, the 2010 turns dark, inward and brooding, as hints of graphite and crushed rock frame the finish. Proprietor Mike Officer used 33% whole clusters on the Sierra Mar. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.

    Glass-staining purple. Displays intense blackberry and blueberry aromas, with sexy allspice, anise and floral pastille nuances. Stains the palate with intense blueberry and boysenberry flavors, picking up spiciness and sweetness with air. Finishes with a velvety, sweet quality and excellent tenacity and spiciness.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Rustic and chewy, showing dense dried currant, spice, raspberry and fresh-turned earth flavors. Not as forthcoming as the Papa's Block, but shares its structure. 236 cases made.
