Jc Cellars Syrah Rockpile Haley's Reserve Rockpile Vineyard 2006

External Review:

Varietals: 100% Syrah Appellation: Rockpile Alcohol: 15.3% Comments: This is the most powerful and intense wine to come from Rockpile Vineyard to date. We are now onto our fourth vintage of producing Syrah from this vineyard, with this being our lowest tonnage per acre yet. Red and black fruits, with a mineral backbone are the hallmarks of this wine and this up-and-coming appellation. A wine of great depth and concentration, Rockpile Vineyard Syrah exhibits extracted fruit character, spice box, wet stone, and smoky notes followed by JC Cellars signature supple mouthfeel. Reviews: Robert M. Parker, Jr.s The Wine Advocate: 93+ points Consistently one of my favorite JC wines...Boasts an opaque black/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of blackberry liqueur intermixed with melted licorice, smoked meats, acacia flowers, and a talcum powder-like, stony minerality. Powerful with superb underlying acidity and layers of richness, this is a blockbuster Syrah that should drink well for a decade.
