    Winemaker's Notes:

    As unbelievable as it is to us, our niece Bailey is now 16-years-old. She has really changed since our first BMT vintage back in 2003. Our once-little niece is now a beautiful, sophisticated young woman – with a driver's license! Time truly does fly. In making this year's BMT we added a little something different – 15% Turner Vineyard Syrah for a touch of pepper to spice up the finish. It just seemed a fitting reflection of Bailey's growing confidence and sharp wit. We also blended in 40% Tierra Alta Syrah to create a lovely, earthy base, 30% Colson Canyon Grenache for notes of black cherries and blueberries, and 15% Colson Canyon Syrah for notes of purple plums, cassis, chocolate and coffee. This wine is elegant and silky and definitely age-worthy. This BMT should continue to mature beautifully over the next ten years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    An element of floral lift from the addition of 25% Colson Canyon Grenache distinguishes the 2009 BMT Syrah from the rest of the wines in this lineup. The BMT wraps around the palate with serious intensity. Layers of fruit continue to build as the wine flows through to its vibrant, perfumed finish. A last burst of juicy, ripe fruit rounds things out in compelling fashion.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    A rich, dense, extracted style, with loads of dried blackberry, wild berry, pepper, spice, sage and cedar that are compact and in need of cellaring. Slow to unfold, but as it does this reveals the tight mix of flavors and firm tannins.
