The 2010 Syrah Hudson Vineyard Pleine De Chene is made from the northern side of the Hudson Vineyard and is 100% Syrah. This part of the ranch has cooler temperatures and the soils are richer in clay than those found on the southern side of the property. The Pleine de Chene is a decidedly more open, supple wine that places expressive fruit front and center. I don’t quite find the visceral thrill of the T’n’S, but in exchange the Pleine de Chene should drink well pretty much out of the gate. My only question is: couldn’t Morgan Twain-Peterson given his two Hudson Syrahs simpler names? Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. (AG)
Bright purple. Explosive aromas of blueberry and cherry preserves, with notes of apricot, incense and violet adding complexity. Lush, deeply pitched black and blue fruit flavors show outstanding vivacity and power, with a bright, spicy quality building on the back end. Offers a compelling marriage of richness and elegance, finishing with strong echoes of pit and blue fruits. (ST)
A riveting experience, deep, rich, plush and expansive, with an array of ripe blackberry, plum and black licorice flavors, adding touches of espresso and freshly turned earth. Gains depth and maintains persistence. (JL)
