This has such impressive, silky black fruit with interwoven spices and subtle, meaty nuances. The intensity of fruit is dialed-up in this wine. There’s a very pure, bright fruit core here that pushes out of the mid-palate with a lot of energy and stony, graphite-like notes. This has a wealth of dark berries on offer. Such length and balance.
The 2016 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard has complex aromas of peppercorn-crusted meat, iodine and smoke along with crushed violets and a wet river rock minerality. The wine is medium to full-bodied on the palate, showing soft tones of underbrush that add to the range of the expressions on the palate, later moving to a delicate stemmy note with a flutter of Sakura. The finish is thoughtful and complete, with good focus and balance. Only 525 cases produced. (AM)
Full, bright medium red. Alluring, vibrant scents of raspberry, steak tartare and Benedictine herbs are lifted by a floral topnote and complicated by faint barnyard note that screams out Rhône Valley. Then dense, savory and alive, with its intense red raspberry fruit joined by a slightly meaty wildness and perked up on the back by black pepper. A classic Old World style of Syrah with terrific definition and lift and a very long, rising finish featuring dusty, well-supported tannins. This utterly captivating wine boasts rare persistence for seven-year-old vines and should age well. 94+
Polished, multilayered and distinctly spirited, with vivid huckleberry, black olive and peppered beef flavors that take on richness and speed toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2027. (TF, Web Only-2019)
