The 2005 Syrah Cuvee Moriah (a blend of 75% Grenache 14% Syrah 10% Mourvedre and 1% Roussanne) is deep ruby/purple with huge amounts of peppery black raspberry and kirsch notes a touch of underbrush and fennel as well as a long heady finish. This is sumptuous puncheon-aged wine that is big on fruit complexity and deliciousness. This is not one for making old bones so drink it over the next 3-4 years.

Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas with suave Asian spice and mineral accents. This is almost pinot-like in its clarity and brightness and reminded me of a Dujac wine. Very spicy raspberry and strawberry flavors show a distinct peppery quality with excellent lift and palate coverage. A hint of fresh wasabi on the finish adds energy and cut. There's real finesse here.
