The 2009 Syrah Jack Robert’s Run Gregori Vineyard is a gorgeous wine layered with blackberries, tar, graphite, incense, camphor and game. In 2009 winemaker Andy Smith waited out the rain and harvested in late October. He was rewarded with a huge, opulent wine that possesses stunning richness and intensity yet is not at all heavy. A mineral-drenched finish adds the last layer of complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.  (2/2012)

Glass-staining purple. Highly perfumed aromas of candied red and dark berries, smoky minerals, Asian spices and black pepper. Deeply pitched black raspberry and cherry flavors show impressive intensity and pick up spice and floral pastille nuances with air. Silky, sweet syrah, with gentle tannins and building notes of olive and peppery spices on the very long, sappy finish  (5/2012)

Shows a high level of intensity and rusticity, marked by chewy dried berry, game meat and cedar notes. The most complete of the DuMOL Syrahs. Best from 2013 through 2022.  (3/2012)
