Concentrated and broad but quite backward with shy flavors of crushed dark berries and black olive. At once rich and quite dry in a style I would not have described as California. Cool and sexy syrah with a firm backbone. 92(+?)

The 2009 Syrah Bouquet Garni flows across the palate with expressive layers of fruit. There is a caressing, inviting quality to the 2009 that makes it incredibly inviting even at this early stage.

There is a caressing, inviting quality to the 2009 that makes it incredibly inviting even at this early stage. Plums, black cherries, spices, licorice and tar are woven together beautifully on the creamy, expansive finish. This is a lovely wine to drink now and over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. - Antonio Galloni
