Description2010 Joseph Phelps Syrah, Napa Valley, USA
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Syrah is deeply expressive from the first taste. Blue and black fruit, grilled herbs, sage and rosemary all come together nicely in the glass. The 2010 is at times a bit rustic, but it has plenty of varietal character and excellent balance in its class. I expect the 2010 will drink nicely for a number of years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a fine Syrah from a producer with a long history of success with the Rhône variety. It's inky and dark in color with a palate that's tannic and dry, with long, deep, spicy flavors of blackberries, grilled meat, black pepper and toasty oak. It will provide good drinking with grilled meats and stews over the next two years.
Vinous(from Hyde Family Vineyards fruit): Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of raspberry, graphite, smoked meat and pepper, all lifted by a floral topnote. Round, supple, spicy and dry, with a fairly strong oak component currently muting the wine's varietal character. Finishes firmly tannic and a touch dry.
