Issue Issue 138

($55) Opaque purple. Sexy, highly aromatic nose offers an array of dark berry and floral qualities, along with incense, Asian spices and dried violet. Rich and creamy, with vibrant blackberry and cassis flavors, velvety texture and bright minerality. Manages to be both rich and energetic, with outstanding finishing lift and persistence. This was fermented with 75% whole clusters.

The brilliant 2006 Syrah Walker Vine Hill Vineyard reveals sweet notes of white chocolate, creme de cassis, spring flowers, and hints of pepper as well as damp earth. Full-bodied with superb fruit purity, a multilayered texture, and a stunning finish, it should drink well for 6-7 years.

Very rich and extracted, with ripe, dense, wild berry, blackberry, boysenberry, mineral and pebble flavors, ending with firm tannins. Impressive for its power and finesse.

Very tight upon initial taste but decants rapidly to release a smooth, velvety, currant filled mouth. Silky on the finish

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
