Always one of the most unique in the lineup, the 2014 Syrah Bionic Frog is phenomenal stuff any way you look at it. Cold fireplace, charred meat, tapenade, shiitake and loads of dark, earthy fruit all emerge from this full-bodied, tight, backward and beautifully concentrated Syrah that readers just need to taste. Incredibly long, elegant, building and heavenly juicy, don't miss a chance to get some of this! It needs 3-5 years of cellaring and is going to blow you away over the following two decades. (JD)
(13.5% alcohol; aged in a new 1,200-liter Burgundy foudre and the rest neutral oak): Dark red-ruby. Wonderfully aromatic nose offers scents of raspberry, licorice, brown spices, mustard seed and green pepper. Flavors of cherry and raspberry liqueur are complicated by suggestions of sage, spices and exotic fruits. Very rich wine, but shows a bit more greenness than the 2013 edition, an element that infuses the mid-palate with energy. Finishes with very ripe, spicy tannins and outstanding persistence. The vines were harvested on September 18 and 22. (ST)
Plush and expressive, with a core of great structure, offering blackberry, licorice and smoky meat notes that glide through a rich, layered finish. Drink now through 2024.
