The 2016 Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard is incredibly elegant and finessed. Aging in 25HL cask give the Syrah striking translucence and energy, with less bombastic fruit than in the past, and far greater nuance. Crushed red berry fruit, rose petal, mint and sage are all lifted by the 100% whole clusters, while firm yet well-integrated tannins give energy and cut. I can't wait to see how the 2016 ages. The 2016 spent 28 months in oak. (AG)
The 2016 Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard exhibits aromas of crunchy wild berries, juniper, cracked black pepper, rich soil and subtle smoke. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy, with super depth and concentration, a multidimensional core and a long, taut finish. Harvested in mid-October, this is going to demand plenty of patience, but it's full of promise. (WK) 93+
The deep ruby/purple-hued 2016 Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard is for those who like a little blood and meat in their Syrah. Crazy notes of blackcurrants, beef blood, ground stems, and pepper all emerge from the glass, and this puppy is medium to full-bodied, has good concentration, loads of tannins, and a great finish. It's a primordial beast at the moment, so give bottles at least 3-4 years of bottle age. 92+
