Pungent spicy lift to the aromas of raspberry, boysenberry, smoked meat, grilled herbs, rose petal and red licorice complicated by white pepper and black olive; coffee and mocha notes emerged with extended aeration. Really remarkably aromatic Syrah: supple, savory and concentrated, conveying strong Rocks salinity to its flavors of raspberry, plum, cured meats, spices and flowers. Shows a strong resemblance to the 2017 but that's hardly a surprise as Steve Robertson's wine comes entirely from the parcels of Syrah that he originally planted in 2007. Enticing sweetness and broad, ripe tannins give this seamless wine early accessibility but it has the energy and stuffing for mid-term aging. Really spreads out to saturate the palate on the long finish. This quintessential Rocks Syrah was even silkier with extended aeration. Incidentally, Robertson will make his first varietal Grenache from the 2020 harvest, from a one-acre parcel that he also planted in 2007 (i.e., its 14th leaf). -- Stephen Tanzer

Coming from the edge of the Rocks District and blended with 8% Viognier, pure huckleberry, flower, olive, orange peel and coffee aromas are the opening hand.

It follows with abundant, palate-coating blue-fruit flavors with an almost creamy feel. The flavors persist on the coffee and blue-fruit-filled finish. It's a rich, fruit forward expression of this often savory sub-appellation of the valley with impressive staying power and a very long life in front of it. Best from 2026–2032. SEAN P. SULLIVAN
