    Region: Central Coast, California

    Varietal: Syrah/Shiraz

    Item no. 127955

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright medium ruby. Scented, high-pitched, very pure nose offers blackberry, exotic spices, flinty minerality and a whiff of meat. Densely packed and seamless but also sharply delineated, with a saline, smoky minerality and a bit of oak influence partly hiding the wine's inherent sweetness of fruit. Dry, meaty, classic syrah with a wonderfully chewy, palate-saturating finish. Showed increasing pliancy and nuance as it opened in the glass.

    International Wine Cellar

    The 2009 Syrah Hilltop comes across as massively powerful yet compact within the context of the other 2009s here. Interestingly, its bouquet is much more expressive, where sweet white flowers and all sorts of minerals add considerable complexity and a higher-toned register to the fruit. A blast of dark raspberries and black plums frames the long, intense finish.
