    Good bright, deep red with ruby highlights. Knockout Hermitage-like nose combines blackberry, gunflint, clove, pepper and rose petal. Sweet and densely packed, with dark berry and pepper flavors complemented by deeper-pitched elements of smoke and leather. The utterly palate-saturating finish features substantial dusty tannins and outstanding clarity and lift for such a rich wine.

    This insanely good 2010 Syrah Bionic Frog offers incredible notes of blood orange, liquid violets, cassis, seared meats, licorice and crushed rocks to go with full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannic structure, perfectly integrated acidity and a blockbuster finish. Raised in roughly 20% new demi-muids and foudre, this is a heavenly Syrah that couldn't get any better. Give it 2-4 years in the cellar and enjoy bottles through 2030.

    (14.8% alcohol; harvested on September 30): Full, dark red. Sexy scents of wild raspberry, truffle, olive tapenade and licorice. Wonderfully silky but firm, offering flavors from virtually all of the Syrah food groups: dark raspberry, boysenberry, plum, pepper, licorice, gunflint, smoke, brown spices, game. This wine boasts an uncanny 3-D texture and incredible depth. The ripe tannins are thoroughly buffered by fruit on the slowly building finish, which saturates the palate and the sides of the mouth. A great wine in a rather Hermitage style.
