2013 Cayuse Syrah Wallah Wallah Special #5 CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah RP96 1.5 L 1 $210.00
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.
2001 Dehlinger East Face Syrah CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah 750 ml 2 $75.00
2006 Dehlinger East Face Syrah CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah 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.
2006 Dry Stack Cellars Marie's Block Syrah CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah 750 ml 12 $35.00
2009 Dumol Syrah Eddie's Patch CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah 750 ml 1 $79.00
2006 Martinelli Lolita Ranch Syrah CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah 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 CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah 750 ml 1 $35.00
2008 Next Of Kyn No 2 Cumulus Vineyard Syrah CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah RP96 750 ml 1 $475.00
The 2008 Syrah Cumulus Vineyard is impeccably silky and refined. Dark fruit, camphor, licorice, smoke and mocha flesh out in this gorgeous, delineated wine. The 2008 impresses for its length and persistence. Today, the 2008 is more refined and elegant than when I tasted it a year ago. The 2008 is 82% Syrah, 13.5% Grenache and 4.5% Roussanne (all destemmed) that spent approximately 32 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
2010 Next Of Kyn No 4 Cumulus Vineyard CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah 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 CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah RP94 750 ml 2 $100.00
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 CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah 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 CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah 750 ml 1 $74.00
2015 Roar Garys' Syrah CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah 750 ml 1 $40.00
2006 Saxum Booker CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah RP94 1.5 L 2 $239.00
The denser purple-hued 2006 Booker Vineyard offers up aromas of acacia flowers, blackberry liqueur, charcoal, and graphite. Although not as complex as its 2006 siblings, it is a dense, full-bodied, mouth-filling wine that saturates the palate, and finishes stunningly long and pure.
2007 Saxum Booker CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah RP99 750 ml 1 $195.00
The inky/purple-hued 2007 Booker Vineyard (95% Syrah and 5% Grenache) boasts a floral-dominated bouquet with camphor, blackberry, roasted meat, and espresso scents in the background. The density, flavor intensity, richness, full-bodied power, elegance, and freshness are all hallmarks of this special vintage in the Central Coast. This wine should drink well for 10-12+ years.
2008 Saxum Booker CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah RP98 750 ml 1 $185.00
The 2008 Booker Vineyard (92% Syrah and 8% Mourvedre, which had also been bottled immediately before my visit) has an opaque purple color and a wonderfully sweet nose of black cherry, black currant, licorice, incense, and some Asian spices. The wine has seamless lushness, a voluptuous texture, stunning purity, and a very long, 40-second-plus finish. Booker is another top site that I believe was planted with Justin Smith’s help. It is a 40-acre vineyard sitting on similar limestone soils. This incredible wine would probably benefit from a couple of years of cellaring, as the structure is more present, no doubt due to the high level of Syrah in the wine. It should evolve for 10-15 more years.
2010 Saxum Broken Stones CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah RP(92-94) 750 ml 5 $111.00
A rush of dark Syrah fruit announces the 2010 Broken Stones. Menthol, tar and sweet spices develop with time in the glass, adding considerable complexity and nuance. This is a seriously rich, intense wine endowed with deep layers of fruit and a huge, muscular finish. Here, too, I sense the wine is a bit tight, but it should be ready to go in another 6 months or so. The blend is 63% Syrah, 19% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache and 3% Petite Sirah. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
2010 Saxum Broken Stones CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah RP(92-94) 1.5 L 1 $238.00
A rush of dark Syrah fruit announces the 2010 Broken Stones. Menthol, tar and sweet spices develop with time in the glass, adding considerable complexity and nuance. This is a seriously rich, intense wine endowed with deep layers of fruit and a huge, muscular finish. Here, too, I sense the wine is a bit tight, but it should be ready to go in another 6 months or so. The blend is 63% Syrah, 19% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache and 3% Petite Sirah. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
2015 Saxum Broken Stones CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah RP97+ 750 ml 6 $125.00
Blended of 48% Syrah, 21% Mourv?dre, 20% Grenache, 10% Petite Sirah and 1% Roussanne, the 2015 Broken Stones displays a deep garnet-purple color and nose of freshly crushed black cherries and blueberries with touches of fertile loam, garrigue, mossy bark and rare beef. Full-bodied with wonderful vitality and purity, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and a very long, pepper-laced finish.
2007 Saxum Heart Stone CA Rhone Rangers & Petite Syrah RP98 750 ml 1 $185.00
The late-released 2007 Heart Stone, which spent 28 months in a combination of barrels, demi-muids, and pungeons, turned out to be a final blend of 65% Syrah, 21% Grenache, and 14% Mourvedre. Like all of Justin Smith’s 2007s, it is a riveting, sensational wine that carries its heavy weight, profound richness, and intensity very gracefully. That is no doubt an effect of the limestone soils of this region. Blackberry and smoked meats as well as some garrigue and floral notes are followed by a dense, rich, pure, multi-layered wine that just screams for grilled poultry or meats! Bottled unfined and unfiltered (and as I recall, 25-35% stems/whole clusters were used during fermentation), this is a fabulous wine that combines power and elegance. It should drink well for at least a decade or more.
