Benchland Dry Creek Valley Syrah 2018

My mother adores this wine.

A tad too hot and intense for me at the moment. It’s drinking like a cross between a nice Aussie Shiraz and young Cornas. Ripe blueberry, fig, blackberry, olive tapenade, singed herbs, licorice. Long finish. Give it some more time.

We’re you at the winery? In Dry Creek Valley?

DuMOL

Russian River Valley Syrah 2016

The wife and I did a fun Syrah blind tasting with the coravin. We ranked the wines exactly the same. I feel like a Modus Operandi fanboy, but their wines really do perform well in these blind tastings. #1 Modus Operandi 2018 Caldwell Vineyard Syrah #2 Dumol 2016 Wild Mountainside Russian River Valley Syrah # 3 Kimsey 2017 Syrah. The MO and DuMol were much better than the Kimsey. I was really disappointed in the Kimsey. It just wasn’t there. Since DuMol is tagged here, the nose had dark fruits and a bit of funk. Flavors were nice, and the finish lingered a bit, but not as long as I would have liked. Score is for the DuMol. — 16 days ago

Dry Creek Valley Grenache Blend 2018

Solid new world Grenache.

Yes, it’s all fun and strawberry jam at first. But this wine is fresher and more structured on the palate. Syrah lends some smoke, pepper, savoriness, depth and structure. Red and black licorice.

Campbell Ranch Vineyard Syrah 2018

True cool site Sonoma coast Syrah in the hands of talented winemakers is criminally underrated. Delicious first night, falls apart overnight in the fridge. Beware. — 14 days ago

Crux

Russian River Valley GSM 2014

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Great nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, light cedar, earth, licorice, spices, chocolates, coffee, tobacco, light vanilla, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, oak, herbs, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn and tobacco leaf.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty Grenache blend from Russian River Valley. Showing nice complexity now, with a great nose.

This 8 year old is peaking now. Nicely balanced with a soft mouthfeel. Elegant and extracted. Fruit forward and spicy.

Easy drinking, good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime.

I had it 3 years ago, and it is definitely better now. Tangy and interesting.

I gave it a light chill, and had it all by itself.

A blend of 58% Grenache, 22% Mourvedre, 18% Syrah and 2% Petite Sirah.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$46.
