Looking at the Syrah, the 2011 Syrah Verna’s is a supple, sexy effort that’s loaded with black cherry liqueur, blackberry, pepper, stem, bacon fat and assorted meatiness on the nose. Filling in beautifully on the palate, with a medium-bodied profile, this knockout, voluptuously textured effort has no hard edges, serious purity of fruit and ripe tannin that emerges through the finish. Taking the better part of a day to shine, this beauty should be given another 2-3 years of bottle age and consumed over the following 7-8 years. Drink 2015-2022. - Jeb Dunnuck

Inky ruby. Potent dark berry, Indian spices, minerals and black olive on the nose. Fat, juicy, gently sweet blackberry and cassis flavors are underscored by peppery spice and candied licorice qualities that gain energy... Inky ruby. Potent dark berry, Indian spices, minerals and black olive on the nose. Fat, juicy, gently sweet blackberry and cassis flavors are underscored by peppery spice and candied licorice qualities that gain energy with air. The smoke and dark fruit elements repeat on the youthfully tannic, spice-tinged finish: sweet, focused and long. - Josh Raynolds

This Syrah shows just a touch of smokiness. It has vital acids and furry tannins that structure the cherry pie flavor. Great for drinking now if you’re looking for a medium-bodied selection.
