The 2018 Syrah Estate is a fabulous example of both the estate and everything Ballard Canyon is about. Fabulously deep and expansive, the Estate captures tremendous character. The flavors are dark, brooding and so rich. Black cherry, plum, leather, spice and dried herbs abound. The 50% whole clusters are nicely integrated, but the tannins are equally imposing, so a measure of patience is critical. All of the other Syrahs in this range are compelling, but to me the Estate is the most complete. It's a reference-point wine for the appellation. (AG)
An assembled barrel blend, the 2018 Syrah Estate is medium to deep ruby-purple and scented of candied blueberries, black cherries, black and red currants, baker's chocolate, cranberry, violet and lilac plus soil and garrigue hints. Medium to full-bodied, it offers a full spectrum of cocoa-tinged, tricolored fruits, with firm, pleasantly chewy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and perfumed. (EB)
