The estate's Syrah-dominated cuvee is the 2012 Intrepid, which includes 5% Grenache and was raised in 50% new oak. Savory and with tons of chalky minerality, it has lots of cassis, dried herbs, dried flower and spice aromas and flavors, full-bodied richness, an awesome texture and building tannin that emerge on the finish. It's another terrific wine from winemaker Scott Hawley that will deliver the goods for at least 5-7 years. (JD) 94+
Very dark in the glass, this imposing wine shows bacon fat, black cherries, blackberries, allspice and violet-flavored cookies on the lush and layered nose. Once sipped, a silky, luscious mouthfeel conveys blueberry pastry, lavender, black tea and espresso notes, set against a strongly tannic backbone that ensures long aging. Drink 2017–2027. *Cellar Selection* (MK)
Inky purple. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blackberry, blueberry and sandalwood, along with a suave floral overtone. Weighty yet graceful, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors and hints of candied violet and licorice that build in the glass. This impressively fresh, focused wine finishes with strong thrust, smooth tannins and a lingering floral quality. Distinctly elegant for its power and built to age. (JR)
Plush and burly, showing lots of personality, this is not a wine for the faint of heart. Aromas of dark berry, spice cake and pepper beef lead to dense, layered flavors of smoky plum, grilled sage and lead pencil. Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2027. (TF)
