Woody, jammy and intense with a touch of obvious alcohol on the nose. Big and round with a soft entry, fairly intense acids here are not entirely integrated, lots of extract, lots of extracted tannins on th finish which continues to show some heat. Big and powerful with intense flavors of rosemary tinged, slightly baked plum and blackberry fruits but the structural disarray keeps this from fully appealing. Perhaps some time will help. I am not convinced.

2-3 hour decant. Not a very expressive nose as it probably wasn't fully opened up yet, but there's good, pure dark fruit on the palate with plenty of spice and the alcohol & acidity are all in nice balance. Medium to full bodied. Subtle but persisting finish, medium tannins. Nice showing. 94 points.

The 2005 ô44 James Berry Vineyard is a blend of 81% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and 9% Grenache that was aged 44 months in a combination of small barrels and larger demi-muids. There are fewer than 100 cases of this inky/purple-tinged 2005, which represen... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2005 Broken Stones, a blend of 74% Syrah, 24% Grenache, and the rest Mourvedre, is a beauty. Notes of licorice, forest floor, pepper, spice box, and loads of black and red fruits jump from the glass as well as saturate the palate. This full-bodie... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

The 2005 James Berry Vineyard (70% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, and 10% Grenache) exhibits the super precision, minerality, and clarity this site seems to provide. It is a dense, concentrated wine bursting with notes of creme de cassis, blackberries, smoke,... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
