The 2012 Syrah White Hawk Vineyard is quite distinctive in this vintage. Just starting to show a bit of aromatic complexity, the 2012 offers striking nuance. Tobacco, licorice, earthiness and grilled herbs wrap around a core of dark fruit in this intriguing, beautifully layered Syrah. The 2012 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. This is the most expressive of the three 2012 Syrahs I tasted. (AG)
More rounded, supple and open knit than the darker-colored 2011, the 2012 Syrah White Hawk Vineyard offers fruit-forward notes of marine-like minerality, sweet blueberry, blackberry, leafy herbs and licorice to go with a medium to full-bodied, rounded, ready-to-go feel on the palate. Surprisingly, I find the 2011 to be more compelling, with additional concentration, depth and richness, and I think the big yields of the 2012 vintage show here. Still, this beautiful wine will drink nicely over the coming 5-6+ years. (JD)
Offers focus, complexity and a rich texture. Smoky boysenberry and mineral aromas combine with layered flavors of black cherry, cedar and white pepper. Drink now through 2025. 237 cases made. (TF)
