There are three Syrahs from Smith. His 2017 Syrah Wild Mountainside comes from a handful of sites in the Russian River and spent 15 months in a mix of one-third new French oak, 20% amphora, and the balance in used barrels. This rocking effort offers classic cool-climate notes of blue fruits, violets, ground pepper, and game. With medium to full body, beautiful tannins, and a seamless texture, it’s going to keep for over a decade.
The 2017 Syrah Wild Mountainside was made with 33% whole cluster and aged for 15 months, 33% in new Ermitage hogsheads and 20% in amphorae. It has a deep ruby-purple color and a nose of roasted coffee, fried thyme and sage, dark chocolate, blackcurrants, chargrilled meats and desiccated violets. Full-bodied, it explodes in the mouth, absolutely jam-packed with ripe black fruit and savory layers, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless acidity to lift the very long, very flavorful finish. Wow! (EB)
Presently the most accessible of the DuMol Syrahs, but still a fairly solid wine whose best lies several years hence, this slightly rounded, full-bodied working boasts a good deal of nicely ripened raspberry-like fruit with a temperate touch of spice confirming its varietal origins. It tightens up toward the finish but remains fruity right to the end, and, while a bit more age is advised, it should come into its own with a comparatively short wait of three or four years.
