This pure Syrah from a great Red Mountain vineyard is a classic in every respect. Deep, succulent black fruits are underscored by tart acid, bone-dry tannins and the vineyard's typical mineral streak. Hints of pepper are sprinkled throughout, and the tight, concentrated layering promises good aging potential. 197 cases made.
