From our perspective this wine seems to have everything. The color is a deeply saturated purple hue. The aromas of concentrated dark cherries leads into the black fruits of boysenberries and plums. The mouth is a rich generous feel on entry and then fills out with a full but not overly unctuous texture.
This Pinot has a deep garnet hue, with aromas that are initially of rose petals, and segues into raspberry and cranberry. The entry is smooth, and yet it still shows a firm backbone structure, provided by the vineyard’s southeastern exposure.
This medium garnet-hued wine is a complex mixture of earthen qualities and fresh fruit. The clean aromas of fresh terroir quickly give way to the darker fruit qualities of plum and cassis. The tannins are soft and silky, leaving a smooth, lingering finish.
Aerating this wine has it opening up into a vibrantly dense wine. On the palate, it releases beautiful aromas of pomegranate and rhubarb. The firm tannins, balanced by the fruit, indicates that it will age well for years to come.
Beautiful aromas of licorice, tobacco, cocoa powder, blueberry and damson plum hint of a complex wine to follow. Silky in texture, the flavors of the aroma profile follow through on the palate with a small touch of floral notes added. Compared to previous vintages, the licorice and tobacco flavors are more predominant, making the 2010 Top Block more reminiscent of a Rhone wine.
Our 2010 Estate Vineyards Syrah is one of those “Wow” wines. The nose jumps up at you with the essence of boysenberry combined with notes of vanilla and licorice. The wine is ever so elegant on the palate with a racy acidity that is refreshing and provides a nice structure for the boysenberry, blueberry, Damson plum and roasted coffee bean flavors.
