The idea behind this wine was to make a wine to celebrate our 25th vintage and last another 25 years. This is a very special bottling. It is 100% syrah from "X" block at Bien Nacido, which is the oldest Syrah block on the vineyard. This is a block that was planted to Riesling, on its own roots, in 1973 and grafted to syrah (Estrella clone) in 1986. In 2005 we began farming X-Block biodynamically.
This is a wine meant to go another 20+ years. It is an intense wine, not nearly as approachable as our other 2006 Syrahs. The aromas show tar and leather with smoked meats, blueberries and hard spice. The flavors are intense with firm tannins and grip. Please don't drink this wine now, but if you must, decant and aerate it to help open it up.
"A gigantic wine, one of the most powerful Syrahs in memory. Shows fabulously rich tannins from stem fermentation, sweet, spicy and earthy. The aromas and flavors are of mushrooms, grilled meat, blackberries, cherries, cola, black pepper and smoky cedar. Extraordinary depth and complexity, a very great California Syrah. Could soar off the charts in the next 2–3 years."
