Gorgeous aromas of smoked meat, berries, and dried flowers. Cameroon black pepper. Very Cote Rotie. Full and velvety with lovely tannins and a chocolate, caramel and fruit character. This has an amazing finish. It goes on for minutes. Phenomenal. Magnificent.
Again, the deep blue/purple-colored 2008 Syrah Eisele Vineyard appears to have more to it. The bouquet offers hints of roasted meats, flowers, crushed rocks and blueberries, and the evolved, approachable wine reveals sweet tannins. It is the product of a tiny crop that appears to have given it an extra measure of density. It should drink well for a decade or more. (RP)
(just 150 cases produced owing to the severe spring frost): Ruby-red. Captivating nose offers dark berries, bacon fat, dark chocolate, mocha and a whiff of flint; sexy and varietally expressive. Then sweet and supple in the mouth, with lovely inner-mouth floral and licorice lift. Harmonious acidity is in balance with the wine's fruit. Finishes with dusty tannins and very good length. I'd give this a year or so to express itself more fully. It should offer relatively early appeal and age well. (ST)
