Good deep ruby. Explosive aromas of crushed blackberry and black pepper. Incredibly concentrated but hugely tannic, with brooding black fruit flavors perked up by a pungent peppery element. With its combination of tannins and firm acids, this demands a fatty cut of meat, or a decade in the cellar. 'This one may age for 30 years,' notes winemaker Ehren Jordan. (ST) 91+
Also closed, tannic, and backward, but enormously concentrated, is the inky/purple-tinged 2007 Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Ridge. With coaxing, it offers up scents of pepper, incense, blackberries, and crushed rocks, but the wine is extremely tannic and impenetrable. Forget it for a decade at least. (RP)
