Tasting Notes

95 points Robert Parker: "The compelling 2008 Syrah Verna’s Vineyard Estate reveals lots of northern Rhone-like bacon fat and meaty characteristics interwoven with garrigue, sweet blackberry, and jus de viande notes. The super-complex aromatics are followed by full-bodied flavors. There is not a hard edge to be found in this both intellectually and hedonistically satisfying wine. It should drink nicely for 5-7 years." (08/10) There is a healthy collection of black and blue fruit aromatics reminiscent of plum, boysenberry poptart, black currants, blueberry and black cherry. Other dark nuances of iodine, figs, chicory and soy are juxtaposed against more delicate scents of violets, white tuberose, dried rose, sage, thyme, fennel seed and Kalamata olives. The palate further expands these varied nuances while also a hint of sea salt pushes through. There is density and plushness on the palate while finishing with strength and acidity.
