The 2010 Syrah Papa’s Block hits the palate with layers of dark fruit. Wonderfully vivid and alive for a wine of its size, the 2010 is absolutely compelling from the first taste. The addition of 33% whole clusters, along with a dollop of Mourvedre and Viognier, gives the 2010 an element of lift that is rare for such a big wine. A huge, concentrated wine, the 2010 is compelling today, but I imagine it will be even better in another few years. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
Tightly wound, firm, dense and focused, with a classic mix of
mocha-laced dark and dried berry flavors, acidity and tannins.
Most satisfying on the finish, where the flavors persist. Drink now
