Lucia Syrah Santa Lucia Highlands Garys' Vineyard 2010

Member Review by EMark:

Quite dark color with very little light coming through. Not the prettiest nose--alcohol more than anything else. If you're looking for a fruity red, this ain't it. Lots of earthy/minerally tastes, here. Pretty tight. Drying tannin on the edges of the tongue. Some bitterness on the back of the throat. It is a robust full-bodied wine, and I'm thinking it might open up with some air. US$35.99 at the Wine Club in Santa Ana

Super dark inky color. The nose shows some varietal character and some over-extracted black & blue fruits. The palate has the grapey-soy-dark fruit profile that FMIII speaks of below. I noticed some dark plum, black pepper, and some minerality. I think this showed better when last tasted (September 06?). The tannin level is nice and seemless, and the acid a bit high. A food wine for sure. Will hold my ast bottle for a year. Now onto the Susans.....The finish is a bit short and flat.

The 2010 Syrah Garys' emerges from the glass with black pepper, violets, tar, licorice, spices and black olives. The use of 50% whole clusters adds an element of aromatic lift that is quite pretty.

Made in a similar style, but even richer, is the 2008 Syrah Garys' Vineyard. Approximately 35% whole clusters were used in this wine's upbringing as well as 35% new oak.
