Wild, intensely perfumed scents of blackberry, fruity black pepper, incense and smoked meat. Spicy and youthfully fruity, with a supple texture and slowly unfolding dark berry preserve, licorice, candied violet and smoky bacon flavors. A distinctly wild rendition of syrah, finishing with sweet tannins and lingering smokiness.

A classic Bien Nacido Syrah with its smoky dark fruit, mineral and pepper-driven bouquet, the 2009 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard X Block (100% Syrah aged 20 months in French oak puncheons) is medium to full-bodied... A classic Bien Nacido Syrah with its smoky dark fruit, mineral and pepper-driven bouquet, the 2009 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard X Block (100% Syrah aged 20 months in French oak puncheons) is medium to full-bodied, beautifully fruited and has a focused, pure feel on the palate. Outstanding juice, it should drink nicely through 2019. Drink now-2019. - Jeb Dunnuck
