92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010
($70; fermented with 3% viognier skins; from vines just over the Sonoma border on Mt. Veeder Bright, deep ruby. Wild, primal aromas of black raspberry, game, pepper, licorice, violet and iodine. Then sweet but a bit youthfully bound up, with terrific syrah fruit complicated by just enough wild, gamey character to give it personality. Finishes long and lively. This was extremely promising from barrel and has turned out very well. Winemaker Mark Herold destemmed the fruit, then added back 60% of the stems for the fermentation.
