This smells fairly vegetal and stemmy with bizarrely sweet vegetal tones recalling roasted parsnip, canned truffle and dried apples, with a spicy top note. Smooth on entry, this is very nicely structured and really well balanced. A fairly large scaled wine with red fruit and a fine transparent feel allowing the briary, earthy elements to add detail in the mouth. A touch clumsy on the back end, this kind of falls apart on the finish. There is a nice echo of fruit that manages to hold on for sometime. The wine making shows some potential, but this is a swing and a miss. 85pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Syrah grapes were destemmed into open top fermenters; we induced primary fermentation with two specialized yeast strains known for their ability to maintain color and produce intense flavors. After fermentation, the wine was pressed into a combination of new and one year old French oak barrels where it matured for 22 months. Only 494 cases were produced.

Tasting Notes:

The 2009 Manzoni Syrah’s cherry, plum, and berry fruit characters dominate the nose, backed by an Hermitage-like whiff of white pepper. On the palate, lush red berry and game flavors are backed by moderate acidity and medium-weight tannins. While delicious now, it will certainly reward a few years of careful cellaring.
