Martian Ranch Dark Matter Syrah 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

100% stems Olives, stems, smoke,leather, grilled meats, and cracked pepper all come together on a beautiful nose that also has a certain quality that recalls used car parts, or the storage corner of a car shop. It’s weird but attractive in a savory, tough way. A bit weighty on the palate with more richness than the other Martian Ranch red wines though this remains lovely with fruit that is a bit chunky but spicy, light and clear with a moderately long, bracing finish that offers up tart fruit topped with that lovely savory aromatic display. Too young and without a track record it’s tough to see where this goes but my gut says someplace I want to be. 91pts
