The 2010 Syrah Laborde Double Select was sourced from 48-year-old ungrafted vines and aged for 14 months in 50% new French barriques before bottling without fining or filtration. It sports an expressive perfume of smoke bacon game leather pepper and blueberry. Smooth-textured and elegant on the palate this savory ripe Syrah conceals enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years and offers a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2022. It is an outstanding value.

A dense ripe Syrah with a meaty core of macerated black plum linzer torte and fig paste notes that display nuances of game spice and tar. Light tannins lift the long lingering finish. Drink now through 2014. -NW

Bright red-ruby. Smoky slightly reduced nose offers dark berries chocolate and a whiff of game.

Smoky slightly reduced nose offers dark berries chocolate and a whiff of game. Lush creamy and sweet with dark fruit chocolate and mineral flavors spreading out to saturate the palate. Very attractive seamless syrah with a broad fine-grained finish. The rootstock originally came from the Rhone Valley more than 50 years ago. After it was propagated in a single vineyard a selection of the best vines was made for this 10-acre vineyard in the Uco Valley. A very successful vintage for this bottling.

The palate is lush but well structured with bullish berry chocolate and creamy oak flavors. Minty and super spicy and long on the finish with a lasting dark toastiness. M.S.
