Expert Reviews

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May 2012

(aged in French oak, 50% new; previously, half of this wine was aged in new American barrels):  Bright red-ruby.  Smoky, slightly reduced nose offers dark berries, chocolate and a whiff of game.  Lush, creamy and sweet, with dark fruit, chocolate and mineral flavors spreading out to saturate the palate.  Very attractive, seamless syrah with a broad, fine-grained finish.  The rootstock originally came from the Rhone Valley more than 50 years ago.  After it was propagated in a single vineyard, a selection of the best vines was made for this 10-acre vineyard in the Uco Valley.  A very successful vintage for this bottling.

Syrah

While the grape is currently grown throughout the world, the most elegant Syrahs still come from the Northern Rhone valley, particularly the appellations of Côte Rôtie, Cornas, and Hermitage. 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...
