The prodigious 2006 James Berry Vineyard (45% Syrah 38% Grenache and 17% Mourvedre) is one of this challenging vintage's top efforts. Performing even better this year than it did in 2007 it reveals phenomenal concentration a superb texture and a stratospheric mouthfeel without great weight or over-the-top sensations. Black fruits licorice minerality and floral notes are found in this intense savory broad long effort. It should drink well for 10+ years.

Deeper dark berries and ripe cherry on the nose complicated by dark chocolate and licorice. The cherry and chocolate qualities build with air and carry onto the palate adding depth to the sweet blackberry and cassis flavors. Smoother and more dense than the Heart Stone with a strong finishing jolt of candied licorice and black olive. Really showing its syrah today.
