(Cellar Selection) This is a tremendous Syrah, in every sense of the word. It’s too young to drink now, although most of the 4,800 bottles produced will be opened too soon. A pity, because the tannins are bigtime, and the fabulous core of blackberries, blueberries, violets, dark chocolate and pepper will easily sustain this wine in the cellar.
Bright ruby. Knockout nose combines blueberry, black olive, white pepper, mocha and menthol. Suave on entry, then dense and primary, with youthfully clenched flavors of black fruits and licorice. Finishes with big, slightly chunky, peppery tannins that will require at least a couple years of cellaring. Vinified with 80% whole clusters. Intriguing, rather Rhone-like syrah.
The 2007 Syrah Phoenix Ranch offers Northern Rhone-like characteristics of bacon fat, roasted meat, bouquet garni, and sweet blackberry and currant fruit. It is full-bodied with sweet tannin, good acidity, and a notion of tapenade. This super-complex, French-styled Syrah can be drunk now and over the next 7-8 years.
