The 2005 Syrah Bien Nacido Special Bottling tastes like a California version of a French Hermitage. It reveals this vineyard’s graphite/lead pencil-like character as well as lots of blackberry, cassis, licorice, plum, and incense aromas. As the wine sits in the glass, notions of smoke and earth also emerge. Dense and full-bodied, this 2005 should evolve for 15+ years. (RP)
Inky purple. Intensely floral, spicy bouquet shows raspberry and boysenberry scents, along with notes of violet, rose, cinnamon and clove. Sappy and sharply focused, offering sweet dark berry flavors and a silky texture. Tannins arrive late and give shape to the spicy, nervy, very long finish. Tolmach told me that he's normally nervous to work with whole clusters but that these stems were perfectly ripe and he couldn't resist the urge to play with them. (JR)
