Brighter than the Griffins Lair Syrah (recommended below), this fills out and gains shape with air. It develops into a powerful red with the scent of roasting meat—a gamey Syrah with the kind of cracked black peppercorn lift that drives many of its cousins from the Northern Rhône. There's blue fruit at the center of the wine, needing a year or two in bottle to fully express itself. Then decant it for bavette.
Inky ruby. Seductive perfume of cherry pit, blueberry, olive and Asian spices, along with a strong mineral quality. Velvety and bright on entry, then energetic and sweet in the mid-palate, with impressive energy to its black and blue fruit compote flavors. Very pure on the bright, extremely long finish, which features lingering floral and mineral nuances. These grapes were harvested on November 5th, 6th and 7th. (ST)
The 2008 Syrah reveals lovely inner perfume in its dark fruit, sweet herbs, licorice and tar. This soft, understated Syrah impresses for its length, inner sweetness and gorgeous, well-articulated finish. The 2008 is a blend of fruit from Clary Ranch, Nellessen Vineyard and Armagh Vineyard, fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in neutral oak. It is a terrific wine, especially for the money.
