From the high elevation and poor soils of the Pisoni Vineyard the 2008 Syrah Susan's Hill was fermented with 25% stems and aged in all French oak of which 30% was new. Among the most backward of the 2008 Santa Lucia Highlands Syrahs I tasted it exhibits noble sweetness in its charcoal-infused black currant and blackberry fruit. Notions of grilled meats smoke black tea and flowers also emerge from this wine of exceptional intensity as well as full-bodied power. This harmonious impressively endowed Syrah will benefit from another 1-2 years of bottle age and should drink well over the following decade.
