Toscana Syrah 2007

Who thinks of Rhône when speaking of Italian wine makers. Hmmm. No too many i assume. If you love Rhône the way i do, you need this in your collection. @tuaritawines Kill it with this masterpiece. A skunk seems to have hibernated in the bottle. Charcuterie and macerated cherry evolve to this silky mouthfeel. It doesn’t stop there with this 20-30 second finish. This ‘07 is in prime form and delivered on all notes. More please — 7 days ago

Bolt to Wines Ballard Canyon Syrah 2017, California

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

On the nose, blackberry jam, sweet cherries, raisins, wood, spices, chocolates, tobacco, graphite, dark coffee, light earth and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black plums, black currants, coffee, oak, spices, earth, light vegetables, tobacco, herbs, tar, vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very nice Syrah from California. Bold and extracted, yet soft on the finish. Spicy and tangy.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, but good right out of the bottle too.

Might be a good idea to wait a few more years with this one.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

La Landonne Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2009

Very lovely! 1 hour plus decant. Dark red color. Nose is big with green and metallic elements. Wine is massive with dark cherries, spice, and meaty flavors. It’s the kind of wine you can take a sip and hold in your mouth for minutes. Soaks the palate and is very deep and chewy. Extremely long finish. High quality and will last for many more years. — a day ago

Côte Sainte-Epine by Mikael Desestret St. Joseph Syrah 2016

Lyle Fass

Gorgeous and deep nose. Cassis, some wood, sappy red berries, smoke, mineral, granite. Needs an hour I’d say. Will track.

Palate is so so 16. Clean, fresh, refined and ripe. Loads of red berry fruit, so juicy, concentrated and pure. Lovely dusty tannins. Very elegant. Long and terrific freshness. Still young and this note is only from 10 minutes open but beautiful wine. Terrific structure as is airs out.

The Hidden Northridge Vineyard Syrah 2015

What a beast of a young Syrah! Dark berry, red meat, leather, and dark spice all punching hard, but not inappropriately for its age. I see this one only getting even better in the coming years. Looking forward to pouring a few bottles along with some of Washington’s other best next week for a local event. — 5 months ago

From the vineyard in the rocks and blended with 8% Grenache Blanc, this is a more nuanced wine than I’m accustomed to from Reynvaan! Gave it a nice decant and, while the funk was present, it blew off quickly. The GB was perceptible in the lighter color and medium body of the wine. — a day ago

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 1990

Dark reddish tawny. Mostly opaque. Great reddish regal color when the light hits the glass. Notes of black cherries, blueberries, cranberries, slate stone, moist earth and a little menthol. Velvet glove in the mouth. Amazingly rich with tannins totally integrated. Silky. Flying high from the moment it was opened. 6 hours in this is getting bigger and more complex. Definitely the best performance I’ve had with this wine. — 2 days ago

Epoch Estate Wines

Block B Paso Robles Syrah 2014

Still too early to the party. Second time at this, still needs a few years. Oh has it changed in a year though. It’s massive. Deep nose of fruit, with silky tannins and deep black fruit on the palate. Olive and charcuterie. Round out this incredible expression of Syrah. Time will be kind but it’s limited — 2 days ago

California Syrah

Nose of black olives and dried herbs. Luscious black fruits and oak. Really a bruiser for being open 6 hours. So good and will only get better with age. — a day ago
