Harrison Clarke Syrah Estate 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Mean and assertive on the nose with layers of black pepper, grilled meats, roasted herbs, soil and mineral notes. In the mouth this is tight, rich and powerful but not weighty with juicy acids and really fine grained tannins supporting savory framed dark berry and plum fruit framed with spicy black pepper and herbs on the backend leading to a moderately long, tangy slightly jammy blackberry rich finish. With fine mineral cut on the midpalate, a lovely inner mouth perfume of violets, and salted plum fruit on the finale this is an engaging wine. 92pts

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.
