This Syrah tries to strike a balance between rich opulence and controlled elegance, and it largely succeeds. It's has exquisite tannins and fine acidity, finishing bone dry. The flavors are complex, immediately suggesting ripe blackberries, with notes of beef tartare, grilled wild mushrooms splashed with tamari, black pepper and minerals. You can draw analogies to the northern Rhône if you want. Will it age? Hard to say, but it's a great wine now.
The 2007 Syrah Barrett Vineyard is beautiful. This vintage seems especially well suited to the site and the style Heidi Barrett is going for. Layers of dark red fruit, smoke, licorice and tobacco flow from this generous, textured red. Floral notes are woven throughout, adding an element of lift and complexity. (AG) 92+
