Composed of 80.5% Syrah, 7% Petite Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre, 2% Grenache and 3.5% Viognier, all sourced from estate vineyards—37% The Third Twin, 36% Eleven Confessions and 27% Cumulus—the 2015 Syrah Trouver L’Arene was made using 34% whole cluster and has a deep purple-black color with intense cassis, black plums and black cherries scents plus hints of anise, violets, sage and tar, with wafts of savory/smoked meat suggestions. Full-bodied, this voluptuous beauty is seriously singing in the mouth, belting out vibrant red and black fruit flavor layers, all framed by very fine, rounded, ripe tannins and a wonderful freshness, finishing with persistent perfumed fruit and a spring in its step.

I think a step up over the Grenache, with more density, the 2015 Syrah Trouver l’Arene is a sensational barrel sample made from 80.5% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah, 7% Mourvèdre and the balance Viognier and Grenache. It saw less whole cluster than normal (which was common in the vintage due to the tiny yields) and was fermented with 34% whole clusters and will spend 22 months in close to equal parts new and used French oak. Blackberries, violets, white chocolate and peppery spice all give way to a big, full-bodied, gorgeously sexy Syrah that has way more fruit and texture than most in this vintage. Nevertheless, it shows the grip and concentration from the tiny yields, and I suspect it will shut down quickly after bottling.
The brilliant 2015 Syrah Trouver l'Arene is powerful and dense, but also light on its feet for such an intense wine. Inky blue/purplish fruit, wild flowers, mint, spice and lavender all flesh out in the glass, but it is the wine's textural finesse that really elevates it. Rich, opulent and super-expressive, the 2015 has all the elements to develop into a spectacular Syrah. The blend is 80.5% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah, 7% Mourvèdre, 3.5% Viognier and 2% Grenache done with 34% whole clusters. (AG)
