Varietal Composition

100% Syrah

Tasting Notes

Notes of dark plums, black cherry, cured meat and a hint of clove. A soft and fragrant pepper is there but it is buried in the fruit at this time. A touch of saline and a floral push add to the complexity. The palate is massive and concentrated, but in its youth, it seems to be hiding detail in its soft tannin and more brambly fruit and mineral driven palate. A fresher and brighter wine than the 2008 Tenor Syrah, but a bit more precocious.


19 months in 100% new French oak 500L’s

Awards & Accolades

"An impressive, pedal-to-the-metal effort that stays balanced and fresh, the 2010 Syrah, aged 19 months in 100% new French oak puncheons (larger, 500-liter barrels), offers up a savory, complex array of creme de cassis, salted beef, licorice, pepper and chocolate as well as a full-bodied, beautifully pure and thrillingly textured mouthfeel. Showing more and more purity and Syrah typicity with air, this fantastic effort can be enjoyed now, but will be even better in 2-3 years. A 10–12-year drink window isn’t out of the question. Impressive! Drink 2015-2022. These are serious, well-made efforts that are priced at a premium."
