An amazing Syrah, vivid, juicy and concentrated, with blackberry and wild berry fruit providing the centerpiece to this complex, full-bodied beauty, which reveals hints of mineral, spice and pebble as it unfolds, ending with firm, chunky fruit flavors. (JL)
Good full red. Sexy, savory scents of plum, brown spices, mint and meat. Plush and liqueur-like, and sweeter than the 2005, with its dark raspberry fruit complicated by notes of smoked bacon, minty herbs, fennel seed and stewed vegetables; this Syrah is animal, vegetable and mineral in the same mouthful. Serious but ripe acidity and suave tannins give this midweight wine lovely shape and a light touch. Still, I find it most impressive on the front half. With its smoky and saline elements, this should match up beautifully with quail or pheasant. (This wine was going through a sullen stage when I last tasted it in 2013, but today it's delivering on its early promise.) (ST)
Not to be forgotten are the 400+ cases of Colgin’s Estate IX Syrah. The French-styled 2006 IX Syrah Estate offers an exotic nose of roasted meats, bouquet garni, and flowers, silky tannins, and full-bodied blackberry and cherry fruit. (RP)
Massive, high in alcohol, distinctly New World in style, this 100% Syrah impresses for its sheer volume. Explodes on the palate with waves of blackberries, cherries, currants, anise, leather, mocha and peppery spices that sink in deep and last long on the finish.
