2001 Alban Grenache PetiteSirah&RR WS93 1.5 L 1 $249.00
Aromatically complex, with high-toned wild berry, tar, blackberry and beefy white pepper, sage and a touch of new leather. It\'s remarkably complex and concentrated, finishing with a rustic minerally edge. Drink now through 2012. 950 cases made. –JL
2008 Alban Grenache PetiteSirah&RR RP94 750 ml 1 $119.00
The 2008 Grenache presents an inward yet expressive core of dark red fruit, flowers and Provencal herbs. There is a gorgeous fleshiness in the glass, but the wine needs time to soften and open up. Today, the 2008 shows quite a bit of promise. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
2001 Alban Reva Syrah PetiteSirah&RR WS94 1.5 L 1 $249.00
Tremendous; dark, dense, rich and concentrated, with layers of beef carpaccio, blackberry, wild berry, exotic peppery spices and touches of tar and herbs, finishing with a long, rich, detailed finish. Drink now through 2012. 1,450 cases made. –JL
2014 Cayuse Impulsivo PetiteSirah&RR RP(95-97)+ 750 ml 1 $119.00
A longer term prospect will be the 2014 Impulsivo, which is 100% Tempranillo brought up in puncheons. It has tons of black and blue fruits, smoked earth and graphite, as well as full-bodied richness, building tannin and top-notch purity. It has a lot of tannin, so it won’t be one to open right on release.
2013 Cayuse Syrah Wallah Wallah Special #5 PetiteSirah&RR RP96 1.5 L 1 $245.00
One of the most complete, layered and elegant 2013s from Cayuse is the 2013 Syrah Walla Walla Special #5, which is made from two separate parcels that remind Christophe of the northern Rhone’s Jamet brother’s Cote Rotie. He also keeps the price low as a thank you to his customers. Giving up classic cool climate notes of green olives, black cherries, scorched earth, ash and ripe herbs, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, no hard edges, incredibly fine tannin and a finish that just keeps going. I thoroughly enjoyed drinking it today, but it will be better with 4-5 years of cellaring and have two decades or more of overall longevity.
2003 Cooper-Garrod Finley Vineyard Syrah PetiteSirah&RR 750 ml 1 $45.00
2001 Dehlinger East Face Syrah PetiteSirah&RR 750 ml 2 $75.00
2006 Dehlinger East Face Syrah PetiteSirah&RR RP93+ 750 ml 1 $75.00
The 2006 Syrah East Face is even more impressively endowed. Its black/purple color is accompanied by a sumptuous perfume of blackberry liqueur, espresso roast, roast beef juices, bouquet garni, and spice. More reserved than the Estate Syrah, it comes from higher elevation parcels and from relatively smaller berries. This cuvee will benefit from several years of cellaring, and should last for 12-15 years.
2009 Dumol Syrah Eddie's Patch PetiteSirah&RR 750 ml 1 $79.00
2000 La Sirena Syrah PetiteSirah&RR 750 ml 3 $50.00
2012 Linne Calodo Problem Child PetiteSirah&RR RP93 750 ml 1 $65.00
Similarly styled (to the 2012 Nemesis), with its sweet berry fruit, bramble, licorice and hints of tar, the 2012 Problem Child is another seamless, sexy blend from Matt that dishes out tons of sweet fruit while staying fresh and lively. Made from 74% Zinfandel, 14% Syrah and 12% Mourvedre, this full-bodied, fruit-forward effort can be consumed anytime over the coming 5-7 years.
2006 Martinelli Lolita Ranch Syrah PetiteSirah&RR RP92 750 ml 1 $35.00
The 2006 Syrah Lolita Ranch exhibits smoky, blackberry, and meaty characteristics, high tannins, but fabulously concentrated fruit that offers notes of tapenade, chocolate, and Chinese black tea. A tannic finish suggests another 1-2 years of bottle age will be beneficial. This cuvee should easily last for a decade.
2006 Martinelli Vellutini Ranch Syrah PetiteSirah&RR 750 ml 1 $35.00
2009 Next Of Kyn No 3 Cumulus Vineyard Syrah PetiteSirah&RR RP96+ 750 ml 2 $325.00
A burst of black fruit, mocha, espresso and licorice hits the palate as the 2009 Syrah Next of Kyn shows off its inimitable personality. There is a pure voluptuousness in the 2009 that is striking. The immense purity of the fruit gives the 2009 tons of elegance and character. At the same time, big, rich, silky tannins form a backbone that allows the wine to show its expressiveness and pedigree. The 2009 is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. In 2009, the blend is 80% Syrah, 14% Grenache and 6% Roussanne, all destemmed. The wine spent 30 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
2010 Next Of Kyn No 4 Cumulus Vineyard PetiteSirah&RR RP97 1.5 L 1 $725.00
Even better though, the 2010 Cumulus Vineyard #4 checks in as 44% Syrah, 32% Grenache, 12% Petite Sirah, 8% Mourvedre and 4% Touriga Nacional. Fermented with 24% whole cluster and aged 30 months in 63% new French oak, it offers awesome purity and richness with no apparent weight. Blackberry, mineral, spring flowers and underbrush are just some of the nuances here and it builds on the palate with silky tannin, beautiful texture and blockbuster length. As with the Cumulus Vineyard #3, it dishes out plenty of pleasure now, yet will age brilliantly for 10-12 years. Drink now-2026.
2011 No Girls Grenache la Paciencia PetiteSirah&RR RP94 750 ml 2 $110.00
The 2011 Grenache La Paciencia Vineyard is 100% Grenache that was harvested on October 23 and aged 22 months in neutral puncheons. Elegant and finesse driven, with a sweet bouquet of wild strawberries, mint, game, rose petal and dried flowers, it is medium to full-bodied, seamless and silky on the palate, with no hard edges. Already delicious, it will drink beautifully over the coming decade or more.
2004 Pax Syrah Alder Springs The Terraces PetiteSirah&RR RP93 750 ml 1 $39.00
The 2004 Syrah Alder Springs Vineyard The Terraces exhibits beautiful, pure blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with smoke and toasty oak. Rich, broad, and savory with light to moderate tannin, it will drink well for 7-8 years.
2002 Red Car Sugardaddy PetiteSirah&RR 750 ml 1 $74.00
2012 Roar Garys' Syrah PetiteSirah&RR 750 ml 1 $40.00
2014 Roar Garys' Syrah PetiteSirah&RR 750 ml 2 $40.00
