Coming all from Clone 470, co-fermented with 3-4% Viognier in concrete tanks, and brought up in mostly neutral oak, it’s a rich, meaty, smoky, full-bodied Syrah that has classic Northern Rhône-like aromas of black olives, smoked meats, ground, earth, and dark fruits. With a stacked mid-palate and beautiful balance, it’s going to keep for 10-15 years. collapse

The palate is smooth, plump and supple with good weight and depth of flavor,finishing boldly in an assertive yet still supple mode. A blend of syrah and viognier. Drink over the next decade. collapse

The full-bodied palate is generous and compelling with a robust yet velvety base that demonstrates elegance with power. The wine glides over the palate, connecting structuring tannins and supporting acidity to carry this wine for more than a decade. The wine ends with a long and drawn-out finish, with mineral tension and lingering spice tones on the aftertaste. - Anthony Mueller collapse

This red combines harmony with personality, offering evocative blueberry, black olive, river stone and smoky bacon flavors that build toward the dynamic finish. Drink now through 2027. 1,135 cases made. — TF

Then surprisingly firm on the palate, with juicy but very suave flavors of black raspberry, grilled meat, spices and musky minerality complemented by nuances of flowers, tar and earth. Finishes with substantial dusty, broad tannins and a peppery accent. "A great Rocks vineyard with structure," is the way winemaker Brennon Leighton describes Powerline. These vines are planted to the 470 Syrah clone from Tablas Creek, which Leighton says is usually more floral and focused than meaty and earthy. (14% alcohol) -- Stephen Tanzer collapse
