2010 The Recluse Syrah, Broken Leg

2010 Syrah Broken Leg Vineyard

The Recluse

Anderson Valley

Our most seductive Syrah comes from the Broken Leg Vineyard in the cool Anderson Valley and we call her The Recluse. With 35% WC and 3% co-fermented Viognier this is a Syrah to contemplate over hours as she slowly reveals her charms. Bottled in January 2011, the 8 months of rest in bottle were well worth the sacrifice.\r \r 92pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Issue 165 November/December 2012

Charcuterie, white and black pepper, tobacco and leather seduce the senses immediately. Cherry, blackberry and blueberry all laced with floral hints and blood orange prepare the palate. An iron ferrous quality runs through with long and chewy tannins. The finish will linger with more notes of cured meats, smoke and mulberry.
