The 2003 Syrah Castelli-Knight Ranch (which utilizes 75% stems) is primordial, broodingly backward, black/purple-colored. Despite its freshness and vivaciousness, this is a monster Syrah with superb purity, huge, chewy flavors, and notes of graphite, crushed rocks, pepper, and creme de cassis. (RP)
Medium ruby. Knockout pungent aromas of black olive tapenade, Tellicherry pepper, crushed rocks and iron; like a blend of Cornas and Cote-Rotie. The flavors of liquid rocks and black pepper are framed by integrated acidity and mount impressively toward the back. A wine of building power, not at all sweet and quite dominated today by its tannic spine. From a north-facing hillside rich in rocky orange clay. (ST)
There's enough pepper to make you sneeze in this dense, distinctive wine, with exotic hints of lavender, wild berry, black cherry and rhubarb. Finishes with mouthcoating tannins that grab hold and hang on.
