91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010
($28; the label says 14.92% alcohol) Bright, full ruby-red. Dark berries and chocolatey oak on the nose; dustier and less expressive today than the basic 2007 syrah bottling, and a bit reduced. Then more intensely flavored but rather imploded on the palate, with serious concentration and structure and noteworthy inner-mouth energy. Ultimately displays a nicely restrained sweetness balanced by a firm spine of acids and suave, dusty tannins, and the length and energy to reward at least a few years of cellaring.
