Good bright medium red. Enticing, perfumed aromas of medicinal black cherry, mocha, pepper and star anise. Extremely tight and very pure, with a sneaky sweetness to the essentially silky flavors of raspberry, pepper and flowers. Maintains its impressive breadth and silky texture through the very long, rising finish. For all its energy today, this wine strikes me as extremely closed and in need of patience.

Like the 2009 Cailloux, the 2009 Syrah Bionic Frog was closed aromatically, yet offered incredible depth, richness and purity on the palate. Reluctantly giving up lots of dark fruits, chocolate, mineral and roasted herbs, as well as more exotic notes of blood orange and mint, this inky colored, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated Syrah should be forgotten for 3-4 years, yet will have 20 years or more of overall longevity.

Focused, with nice density to the juicy blueberry and black plum flavors, hinting at black pepper, Lapsang souchong tea and tar as the finish sails on and on. Shows presence and depth, deftly balanced on the finish.

Where to start. This wine is an amazing ride. As a relatively new person to wine, this was exciting to drink. Deep cherries, licorice and bacon'y leather fill your nose. You don't want to let it off your tongue as there is so much to taste. And the finish is velvet glove smooth, with the berries flourishing through 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.
