Unti Vineyards Syrah Dry Creek Valley Benchland 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big fruit greets the nose, a little jammy and black and framed with notes of cracked pepper and spicy, toasty oak spice. Broad and a bit flat in the mouth though this has plenty of acidity, it’s just dense and compact . The fruit feels a bit compressed and chunky with sweeter, softer edges that the Syrah ‘normale’. It seems more Californian, smoky and briary, and more polished. There’s fine structure here, keeping the wine lively in the mouth, its just that everything is a bit matte today. 88pts

Unti Vineyards is a small, family-owned and operated winery specializing in red varietal wines with vineyard personality. George and his son Mick believe Dry Creek Valley’s climate is ideal for making full-bodied, fruity reds from Zinfandel, Rhone and Italian varietals. The winery, established in 1997, produces small lots of estate grown Zinfandel, Syrah, Grenache, Barbera, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah and a Dry Rose. The winemaking includes artisan methods which enhance and support an ability to make wines with a sense of place. Almost all of the wines, and opinions, are unfiltered. Read less
