Flirting with perfection, the 2013 Syrah James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock is one of the wines of the vintage. Made from 80% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% each of Grenache and Roussanne, which saw a big chuck of whole clusters, it offers sensational aromas and flavors of black raspberries, violets, pepper and crushed rock that literally come leaping out of the glass. Full-bodied, seamless, elegant, yet concentrated and incredibly pure, with a finish that won't quit, this beauty will stand beside some of the greatest Hermitages out there. Give bottles 3-4 years and enjoy over the following 10-15 years. Unfortunately, due to ridiculously low yields, there won't be a Bone Rock released in 2014 or 2015, so don't miss this beauty! Drink through 2035. (JD)
An imposing wine, rich and powerfully built, revealing a sense of personality and place. Distinctive aromas of crushed stone and floral blackberry combine with densely structured and complex flavors of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and smoked pepper. Finishes with burly but ripe tannins. Needs time to fully bloom. Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Roussanne. (TF)
Glass-staining violet. Expansive aromas of smoke-tinged dark fruits, potpourri, allspice and minerals, along with a hint of white pepper that builds in the glass. Sappy, sweet and densely packed, offering palate-staining boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors given lift and spine by juicy acidity. Unfolds slowly on the penetrating, mineral-driven and insistent finish, which features building tannins and a whiplash of intense blue fruit. (JR)
