92pointsWesterly 2012 Cote Blonde Syrah (Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara)

Enhanced with a bit of Viognier, this wine shows an intriguing mix of violet-like fruit and fragrant juniper on the nose, alongside some game and pepper. Tar opens the palate, but then it evolves toward elderberry jam, coffee and very dark chocolate, with more black pepper and violety fruit on the finish. Matt Kettmann
