2012 Soberanes Vineyard Syrah
The 68-case 2012 Syrah Soberanes Vineyard is a riper, rounded effort that has gained incredible complexity and depth since I tasted it on release. It offers lots of ripe black currants, black raspberries, peppery spice, game, and pencil lead characteristics in a rounded, opulent, sumptuous style that just begs to be drunk. This is just starting to show some evolution, but it gets better and better with time in the glass, has a Jamet-like complexity, and a great finish.
Enjoy this beauty anytime over the coming decade or more.
