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(+?)

While it was showing terrific promise, the 2009 Syrah Bouquet Garni was closed and tight when I tasted it. Its dark ruby/purple hue was followed by notes of herbs, incense, blackberries and vanilla in addition to a tightly knit, coiled, unevolved wine that needs more time in the barrel. It was a difficult wine to assess, and while it should be good, I do not believe it will ever equal what Morlet produced in 2008.
