The 2009 Syrah Eddie’s Patch Hoppe-Kelly Vineyard bursts onto the palate with an exciting array of dark red cherries, rose petals, spices, leather and licorice. The use of 33% whole clusters gives the wine a high-toned register in the bouquet that is especially appealing. Sweet, silky tannins frame the exceptional finish in this pliant, highly expressive Syrah. This is a fabulous showing. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)
Opaque ruby. Heady, complex aromas of candied dark berries, incense and violet, with an intensely spicy topnote and a touch of cracked pepper. Juicy, gently chewy, deeply pitched blackberry and bitter cherry flavors stain the palate. At once dense and lively, finishing with superb clarity, thrust and lingering floral and spicecake nuances.

Involving aromas of caramel, cocoa, ripe berries, lavender and white pepper make for a most tantalizing start here, and, once in the mouth, the wine follows with rich, well-composed flavors that are at once both deep and complex. While it is not at all wanting in body and weight, it shows such fine fit and polish that it is bound to tempt early drinking. We would not disagree with the notion that it offers lots to like now but do promise that it will only get better with time.
Tight, dense and chewy, with an earthy mix of dried berry, licorice, cedar, graphite and road tar flavors. Full-bodied, turning grainy and gritty on the finish, yet the flavors still push through. Best from 2013 through 2023. (JL)
