The compelling, blockbuster 2008 Syrah Cardiac Hill (40% whole clusters/stems used) was aged in 30% new French oak casks. This -blood of Syrah- effort boasts an inky/purple color as well as a thick, viscous, high octane personality. The bouquet offers up scents of beef blood, blood oranges, graphite, blueberries and flowers. This is an exceptionally rich, nuanced, world-class Syrah with good underlying minerality as well as great focus and precision for a wine of such mass and richness. While it is already hard to resist, it should evolve for a decade or more. (RP)
Opaque ruby. Complex aromas of black fruits, smoky minerality, exotic flowers, olive and tobacco leaf; very Syrah. Sweet and juicy, with notes of herbs and exotic flavors and a slight edge of acidity adding urgency to the blackberry and cassis flavors. There's a suave floral streak running through this ripe wine, which finishes with a strong note of peppery spices. (ST)
Ripe, rich, full-bodied plum, blackberry and raspberry form the core fruit flavors, with a touch of cedar and mineral, turning elegant and even delicate from midpalate on. There's just the right touch of tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2020.
