A seductive and well-integrated veil of earthy spice—cinnamon stick, fruit cake, bark, black tea leaf—sits atop a ripe core of red berry and cherry fruits. Beneath that is a strong gravelly, flinty minerality that pervades the palate and expresses strongest on the finish. Medium weight, the tannins are firm yet fine, resulting in a rich, velvety texture. A beautiful and complex expression, this should continue to develop and unfold additional layers of flavor through 2031. (LB)
A single parcel of sustainably farmed Syrah vines has produced a mighty expression of the variety. Creamy, peppery red and black fruits showcase density on the palate, backed up by a berry-like acidity. There is ripeness and vibrancy here, but it remains balanced and elegant. 12 months in 25% new 500 litre French oak barrels, nine months in second fill foudres, and 10 months in bottle, unfined and unfiltered.

The 2015 Schist Syrah Roundstone has a raspberry and mulberry bouquet, touches of rose petal and sous-bois emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, quite saline, and almost briny in the mouth. The grippy finish suggests it will require another couple of years in bottle. (NM)
Fleshy in feel, with layers of cassis, blackberry puree and warmed plum gliding over each other, picking up light mesquite, tobacco and savory accents on the finish. Approachable, but should gain some more nuance in the cellar. Drink now through 2025. (JM)
