Tasting Notes

92 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Deep, inky cherry and blueberry on the nose. Impressively concentrated but also shockingly elegant, displaying sweet dark berry preserve flavors and sexy Asian spices. Soft tannins add structure to an impressively long, sweet finish. How this wine manages to be so rich and obviously ripe while maintaining balance and finesse is beyond me." (Nov/Dec '08) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a complex mix of dark berry and spice, with wild berry and blackberry, pepper and cedar presented in a full-bodied yet elegant style, ending with juicy fruit flavors and integrated tannins. Drink now through 2012. " (Web '08) 91 points Robert Parker: "A brilliant effort, the dense ruby/purple-hued 2006 Syrah Nuts and Bolts possesses roasted meat, Provencal herb, blackberry, cherry, licorice, and tar-like characteristics. A strong, powerful attack, mid-palate, and finish add to this wine’s appeal. Enjoy it over the next 6-7 years." (06/08) You could easily pass hours inhaling the intoxicating perfume that this wine gives, starting with roses, strawberries, toasted coconut and cinnamon and then giving way to more savory notes, like olive, grilled meat and fennel. It fills your mouth with vibrant blueberry fruit, with sassafrass and chocolate notes underpinning it all. Fruit, acid and tans are already well-integrated, but this will continue to improve in the cellar and drink well for more than a decade.
