Tierra Alta Vineyard Syrah 2009

This one took a while to figure out. One of those wines where you’re not sure if it’s corked or not. I always let those sit for ~10min: if it’s corked it will get worse, and if not it should improve. This one definitely improved, with that initial funkiness on the nose evolving into more of a burnt cigar aroma you sometime get in older cool-climate syrahs. I personally prefer The Dare from 2009, but this was an interesting one to sample over time. — 5 months ago

The Dare Syrah 2011

Decided to crack this rare one, only 75 cases produced, since the winery opened the library today and offered up some more bottles. This Syrah is extremely big and complex, lots of tobacco, coffee, and earth up front but finishes in a lingering, soft, and ethereal manner. I believe this is the best vintage of The Dare to date and looking forward to seeing how this wine progresses over the next several years. — 6 months ago

The Big Easy Syrah Blend 2016

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2016 The Big Easy is fabulous. Rich, powerful and flamboyant to its core the Big Easy hits the palate with tremendous fruit intensity. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, white chocolate, vanillin and new American oak shape this opulent Syrah/Petite Sirah/ Grenache blend. Winemaker Blair Fox has dialed in a style that captures all the exuberance of past editions, but with more nuance than the Big Easy has ever shown. And I say that as someone who has never loved this wine. The 2016 is simply outrageously delicious. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2018)

Cabernet Franc 2014

This Wine/Vintage was recommended to me by the owner of Blair Vineyards (Richard Blair) himself. He noted that this was one of his best Cab Franc vintages in quite a while, and I agree with him. Dark cherry and cranberry aromas and flavors with hints of Roasted poblano pepper, mushrooms, smoke and vanilla. There is some tannin and a long finish. Excellent PA vino! — a year ago
