Having a glass of this while I prepare Rajat Parr’s braised lamb shanks (garlic and Indian spices). This is going to pair perfectly! The florals and spices are so pretty! Smooth, ripe raspberries, black plum, with a great finish.

Perfect #DrinkNapa Labor Day BBQ wine! Equally delighted by the northern Rhone-esque beauty of this mountain Syrah and the news that Lagier-Meredith's barrel recovery has saved much of last year's vintage!

yay for cool climate CA Syrah! dark fruit, floral, meaty. Balanced just right. Proof that you should not write a vintage ever. Lovely

A lean vintage gives it an old world feel. A terrific wine.

Dark violet in the glass with a purple rim. Mesmerizing nose of pepper upfront with delicious herbs and spices come to play. This is not all about the fruit. Perfectly structured with great balance, the tannins are firm and the acid so bright. On the palate, there's all sorts of earthy funk going on. Mushrooms, black olives, slightly burnt coffee, wet gravel, and grilled beef. The fruit does come into play after some air with blackberries, blueberries, and a touch of strawberry. The finish is long and exquisite with a bit of sweetness and menthol. Absolutely varietally correct, this baby still has several years left to blossom.

Red fruit and bacon on the nose. The palate is green olives, red fruit, and black pepper. Long finish - delicious.
