This tremendous Syrah is one for the cellar. It's explosive in flavor, offering a mouthblast of peppery blackberries, roasted meat, red licorice, pomegranates and smoky cedar. There are even suggestions of dark chocolate, cassis and minerals as well as sweetness, although it's absolutely dry. It has the most beautiful tannin-acid balance that launches it into classic territory. This superlative Syrah, among the greatest in California, should hit its stride after 2010.
