Top Syrah Between $10-35

12. Trione Vineyards Russian River Syrah (2008)

« Prev 12 of 12
Dark and spicy on the nose with early hints of cracked black pepper, grilling beef, chocolate, violet pastille and fruit that recalls both black currants and blackberries. A powerful wine and one that surprises on entry with a burst of inner mouth perfumes that range from mint to plum, vanilla and violet. The impact in the mouth is substantial but not sweet, with a fair dose of wood and wood tannin covered by rather rich chocolate covered cherry, dried herb and Italian plum flavors. Wood spice pops on the back end and drives the finish, which shows that even the wood tannins here are rather polished. There's a touch of heat, and nice vanilla and spice notes framing the dried blackberry, blueberry, cinnamon and black plum fruit on the long finish. Big and decidedly New World but very well done in the style. 92pts
