Harrison-Clarke Cuvee Charlotte Estate Santa Ynez Valley 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

In barrel 23 months This offers up a simply classic syrah nose rich with inky black pepper, leather, teriyaki, black plum, and lightly minty aromas. On entry theres a tight mineral note followed by a rich, round wine with angular tannins filling out the palate. The wine pops with lovely inner mouth perfumes, blackberrying pie filling, a bit creamy, baking spices and cracked black pepper all come together in a balanced and layered way on the palate leading to a long elegant finish. For a big wine, this has fabulous clarity, freshness and depth on the palate. 93pts

Harrison Clarke Winery:
The great Syrah areas are still being discovered, the future for great Syrah is in the Santa Ynez Valley. Rhone style wines raised from Harrison Clarke Vineyards will be its contribution to wine growing in the Santa Ynez Valley.
