K Vintners Cougar Hills Syrah K Vintners Cougar Hills Syrah 2010
Once again classic Cougar Hills. This wine opens with black olive, dried orange peel, and pink peppercorns, then gives way to sea salt and iodine with a baseline of roasted earth. One Rockin' Wine. Barrel aged 18 months in 40% new French aok. Alcohol 14.5%. 460 cases produced. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 94 points by Rhone Report: Straight-up funky and wild, the 2009 K Vintners Syrah Cougar Hills boast rock star aromatics of hung game, lavender, loads of black olive, and deep, earthy, and yet beautifully pure dark fruit characteristics. Full bodied and balanced, with a sexy, lush texture and a superb, long, and mineral-laced finish, this up-front beauty can be enjoyed now or cellared for 3-5 years. Fun stuff and hard to imagine this coming from anywhere else.

Dieser Einzellagen Syrah zeigt würzige Noten und komplexe Fruchtarmonen. Im Gaumen ist der Wein druckvoll und elegant mit mineralischem Finale.
Vibrant nearly opaque purple core which brightens to a fuchsia rim. This has an immediately aromatic and attractive bouquet showing crushed violet cracked pepper licorice and sweet black fruit. On entry this shows a seductive almost creamy character giving a very round seamless sense to the wine. The fruit is definitively cool climate with high-toned red fruit mixed with muddled black berry dried herbs and olive tapenade along with a sense of mineral chalkiness. Everything is well proportioned and finely balanced with both fruity and savory aspects persistent and in proportion. The structure is far from obtrusive with a great sense of freshness and acidity. This is showing great right out of bottle but has everything it needs to be tucked away for a few years - with the promise of much more to come over the next decade-plus. Geoffrey Binder.
