($60) Glass-staining ruby. Suave, mineral-driven scents of cherry-cola, blackcurrant, incense and fresh flowers, with a strong undercurrent of minerals. Spicy, finely etched dark berry and cherry skin flavors stain the palate, with dusty tannins lending support and slow-mounting minerality adding vivacity. Impressively precise syrah with excellent finishing cut and persistence.

Here, steep, terraced vineyards help produce full-bodied, intense, tannic wines loaded with white pepper and red fruit. In the vineyard, Syrah is largely cooperative- vines are productive, but not overly vigorous. Skins are thick, helping the grape...
