    Reminding me of a top-quality Crozes Hermitage (or maybe a Cornas), the 2011 Alesia Syrah Alder Springs Vineyard offers lots of darker fruits, scorched earth, iron and pepper to go with a medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, lively and character-filled style on the palate. Inky purple/ruby colored, with good concentration and plenty of texture, this is a solid, balanced Syrah to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years.

    (made with 40% whole clusters): Opaque ruby. Smoky, deeply pitched aromas of dark berry preserves, olive, violet oil and cracked pepper, with a minerally nuance adding lift. Intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors put on weight with air and are sharpened by juicy acidity. Finishes sappy and long, with slow-building tannins and excellent clarity.
