Winemaker Notes

The cooler growing season helped to bring new dimensions of flavor to our 2010 IX Estate Syrah. In addition to the wonderful orange blossom and violet perfume that our syrah frequently exudes, in 2010 we have deliciously dense flavors of charred beef and grilled duck meat. A brooding mixture of these savory meats and feminine floral fruits continues into the palate, where suave, savory tannins take over. There is a wonderful salty flavor on the palate, very reminiscent of the northern Rhone. Because of the sheer density of this wine, I anticipate it will age for 15 years or longer. Upon release it is luscious and creamy, but the structure of the tannin should guarantee the wine will support a long aging provided good provenance.

Critical Acclaim

RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 IX Estate Syrah is one of the most compelling Syrahs ever made in California. It ranks alongside some of the perfect Syrahs from Sine Qua Non in Santa Ynez and the Santa Rita Hills. Tasting like liquified steak au poive with blackberry and blueberry sauce, this amazing wine reveals staggering aromas of flowers, bouquet garni, melted asphalt, licorice, pepper and meaty notes. It should drink well for 15+ years assuming you have that much patience.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Hard to imagine a wine with more flavor and moving parts, with explosive fruit jumping from the glass. Rich, layered and exotic, this is loaded with tiers of flavor, offering dark berry, espresso, new leather and cracked pepper, then creamy oak, espresso and dried herb. Sails on and, yes, it's tannic. Best from 2014 through 2030.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
