Juicy blackberry, boysenberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors deepen slowly through the midpalate while picking up a spicy nuance. Broad and chewy in texture, with a strikingly long, floral-driven finish that features well-knit tannins and an echo of exotic spices. Made with 50% new oak. -- Josh Raynolds

Shows drive and depth, with excellent precision through the violet- and alder-tinged finish. Lovely. Best from 2023 through 2036. 800 cases made, 134 cases imported. — JM

It's medium to full-bodied, open-knit and a bit tannic, but it's ripe, flavorful and long on the finish.- JC

Charred hazelnuts, dill and cracked peppercorn lend savory, smoky contrasts to an undercurrent of blueberry and cassis preserves in this wine.

Framed by penetrating but soft, pillowy tannins, it's a rich, roundly structured Syrah with satisfying density and heft. It's best to wait till 2025 at least, and the wine should reward well through 2040. ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA
