Vinous 96 Points: “The 2021 Syrah Wild Mountainside is fabulous. Inky, deep and explosive, the 2021 possesses tremendous concentration from start to finish. Blackberry, chocolate, spice, sage, menthol and gravel all run through this deep, savory Syrah. All the elements come together so effortlessly. The 2021 is blend from Hoppe-Kelly and Limerick Lane.”
Winemaker Notes: “ Soaring multi-dimensional aromatic complexity that is quite dramatic. Violet, dark berry pastille, graphite, and black olive. Bright peppery component with deep succulent blue and black fruits—really sings of its cool climate origins. Simultaneously layered and deep yet beautifully pure and lifted. Focused, granular tannins, powerful but never edgy. Lingering complexity—dusty cocoa and dried herbs. Decant for an hour in its youth. Drink between late-2023 and 2031.”
Tasting Notes: Black cherry, boysenberry, lavender, violet and green peppercorn are all present in the aroma. There’s lovely clarity of flavor and purity of cool climate fruit: cassis and blackberry offset by thyme, tobacco and cocoa nib. A lushness of texture takes over with lingering black fruits and lilac on the peppery, extended finish. Drink this soon after release or enjoy the reward of 10+ years of aging.
