($55) Along the same lines, with beautiful white and black pepper, game, leafy underbrush and berry fruit, the 2010 Syrah Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard Sonnie’s is medium-bodied, elegant and beautifully pure on the palate. Concentrated, with juicy acidity and plenty of length, it should be given 2-3 years of bottle age and consumed over the following decade. The 2010 is 100% Syrah that saw 30% whole cluster inclusion during fermentation and spent 16 months in 50% new French oak. Drink 2015-2025.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 92 Points
Inky ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of black and blue fruits, potpourri, vanilla and Asian spices, along with olive and licorice nuances. Stains the palate with deep boysenberry, blackberry and violet pastille flavors lifted by juicy acidity and a peppery note. The seamless, sweet, impressively persistent finish resonates with dark fruit and floral notes.
Wine Enthusiast 91 Points
($55) This wine manages to be elegant and powerful at the same time. Its delicacy comes from vital acidity and a silky texture, while intense red cherry, currant, licorice and sandalwood flavors fuel the power. This is a wine that wants 6–8 years in the cellar.
This is the best wine from a rigorous barrel selection (8 barrels) and is made from the Alban syrah clone blended with 15% UCD-1 clone. The wine is 30% whole cluster fermented and aged for 16 months in 50% new Ermitage barrels. The wine has great depth and complexity with tremendous pepper spice balanced with intense savory fruit. This was named after Sonnie, Bob’s mother and the matriarch of the family.
