Yorkville Highlands Mourvedre 2017

9.1

1st year they bottled the Mourvèdre alone. Dunnck calls this a California grand cru and I can see why. One of the highest vineyards in California (above 2500 feet) . Balanced with excellent acidity. So much tension and precision to balance the super pure fruit — 3 years ago

Halcon Vineyard Syrah 2015

Lots of black pepper and sage/rosemary. Slightly gamey. Fruit is very wound up and still coming together. — 4 years ago

Halcon Vineyard Grenache 2010

14.8% ABV.
Probably better and more pleasing in its early days I find it out of balance by now.

With the longevity of CA wines in mind perhaps it will be a pleasant surprise for anyone popping a cork in 20+ years?

Hyena Halcon Vineyard Syrah 2017

IMO, the best Syrah yet from Jolie Laide. Deep and thought provoking but not overblown. Loved it. Drink it now or wait. You’ll be happy either way. — 3 years ago

Elevacion Syrah 2016

If you like Northern Rhône, I dare you to find me a California Syrah that you’d like better. This is a sun-kissed version of a good Côte-Rotie - take out some of the rusticity and replace it with fruit, and you ha e this mineral driven wine with a mouthful of flowers, white pepper and violet. A little bacon and meat and olive are missing, to my tastes, and these are somewhat more present in the Alturas bottling. But this is on the elegant side. Good long term upside here. — 4 years ago
