No wimpy wine the 2006 Bone Rock James Berry Vineyard (76% Syrah 18% Mourvedre and 6% Grenache) has over 16% alcohol. It possesses phenomenal texture stunning purity and remarkable freshness which again is attributable to the limestone soils as well as the proprietor's brilliant hands-off winemaking philosophy. A complex perfume of roasted meats black fruits spring flowers charcoal and spice is followed by a wine of enormous richness (yet it is neither overweight nor heavy). Beautiful freshness permeates the wine's black fruit flavors and full-bodied power and length. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. This 2006 should evolve for 12-15+ years.

Impressively fresh with vibrant raspberry blackcurrant and floral pastille flavors. Zesty minerality adds urgency to the deep almost sweet fruit with fine-grained tannins adding grip. The endless finish strongly echoes the spice and minerality of this suave knock-out.
