There’s a real purity to the nose here showing off white pepper, smoke, a touch of matchstick, gamy fruit, green olive tapenade and some red berry notes. Impressively peppery. Rich and soft, this really flows over the tongue with a noticeable viscosity but no stickiness. The flavors mimic the nose: intense if purely rendered with red plum, green anise seed, a touch of mint and lovely gamy nuances, wrapped up in gently cedary oak. The finish shows off more spicy oak, but the fruit quickly regains the upper hand. A bit short today, this is a fine example of California power and Syrah typicity. 92pts
