Black pepper, spices, cloves, plums and blackberries are all woven together in this voluptuous, intense wine. Today, the 2009 tastes like a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. It, too, is a striking wine if taken on its own terms. Syrah lovers are probably better off looking elsewhere. David Ramey told me in retrospect he may have picked a bit later than ideal. I suppose that is part of the learning process, as Ramey began making Syrah only in 2004. Subsequent vintages are more refined, but both 2009 Syrahs are brutes (beautiful brutes!), at least today. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

Smoky, complex aromas of candied black and blue fruits, violet, allspice and anise. Tight, sharply focused blackcurrant and boysenberry flavors become sweeter and fleshier with air. A vibrant, graceful rendition of syrah that finishes with outstanding clarity and palate-staining length. - Josh Raynolds
