Co-fermented with 6% Viognier, the 2015 Syrah In The Rocks is striking, bursting from the glass with an expressive nose of potpourri, wild plums, espresso roast and grilled meats. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, lavish and velvety, with savory flavors of roasted meats and wild dark fruits, concluding with a sapid, saline finish. While I don't think this boasts the depth and dimension of this cuvée's best vintages, it's a beautiful wine with a strong personality. (WK)
Lithe and well-knit, with expressive raspberry and river stone aromas and distinctive, sleekly layered cherry, bacon fat and black olive flavors that gain richness on the long, polished finish. Drink now through 2024. (TF)
The same blend as The Contender and 94% Syrah and 6% co-fermented Viognier, the 2015 Syrah In The Rocks has a pretty, medium-bodied, elegant style to go complex notes of red and black raspberries, peppered meats, and crushed flowers. It lacks a touch of mid-palate depth but is silky, seamless and incredibly polished, and a joy to drink. It should keep for 7-8 years.
