Serious saturated ruby color. Knockout nose combines dark berries, smoky minerals, star anise, black pepper, smoke and animal fur; I would have picked this blind as northern Rhone syrah. Amazingly ripe and expressive today, offering full-bodied flavors of raspberry, minerals, game, earth and spices. This also has the high pH (4.0!) of a ripe-year Rhone Valley syrah. In contrast to the Hayne Vineyard example, this one offers great early appeal.
