More meaty and wild, with notions of forest floor, mossy river rock, lavender, pepper and black cherry, the 2010 Syrah In The Rocks has additional depth and richness on the palate, with fantastic precision and edge to its texture and finish. Where the Foothills Reserve is up-front and ready to go, this seems to be holding back slightly and will benefit from 2-3 years in the cellar. (JD)
Polished, open-textured and compelling, with roasted beet, licorice, crushed rock and smoke accents surrounding a core of pulsing cherry and plum fruit, lingering intensely on the impeccably balanced finish. (HS)
Good bright, dark red. Very sexy, nuanced aromas of cherry, woodsmoke, spices, flowers and black olive; perfumed in a northern Rhone way. Silky and tactile on the palate, with a restrained sweetness nicely complemented by a savory saline quality that does not come at the expense of fresh fruit. Real umami texture here. Very gentle and harmonious wine with intense flavors of black pepper and violet. Finishes with suave, fine-grained tannins and excellent length. This aromatically complex, very long wine is accessible right now but has the balance to age. (ST)
