Blackberries, smoke, tar, game and incense emerge from the inky-hued 2010 Syrah. The 2010 has more varietal character and complexity than the 2009. All the best elements of the house style come together in this huge, structured Syrah. I only hope I have the chance to taste the 2010 with some bottle age, as it appears to have a very bright future. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.
Inky purple. Pungent dark berries, olive and smoky herbs on the nose and in the mouth. Weighty and palate-coating, with slow-mounting tannins and a late jolt of cracked pepper on the clinging finish. I also had a chance to re-taste the 2009 version of this wine; it's showing intense, textbook syrah character right now, with vibrant dark berry character and pronounced spiciness. There's a Rhone-like quality to it that I find quite interesting and while it's drinkable now, it's also balanced to age slowly.
