The darker, richer side of Syrah comes across in the 2010 Syrah Armagh Vineyard. Black fruits, tobacco, licorice, game and smoke burst from the glass. The Armagh is much deeper and richer than the straight Syrah. Although totally different in style, it, too, is fabulous. Layers of fruit continue to build all the way through to the intense, palate-staining finish. Mahle used 100% whole clusters. The 2010 spent 16 months in neutral French oak. In my view, the Armagh is the most essential of these new releases from Wind Gap. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. (AG)
Glass-staining purple. Deeply pitched aromas of cherry-cola, cassis, candied licorice and fruitcake, with a smoky topnote. Fleshy and alluringly sweet, offering concentrated dark berry compote and violet pastille flavors lifted by spicy notes. Shows impressive power on a finish that clings with a sexy floral quality.
