I had a barrel sample of this in SLO earlier this week and it was unlike any california or rhone syrah I have ever tasted. Super-extracted sweet jammy fruit, and that was just on the nose. It was syrupy, fruit-forward and high octane, showing extremely well for a barrel sample. The heat was well intregated because it is very soft, lush and concentrated. Hopefully this will gain more complexity after it is bottled, but i certainly got what all the fuss was about, esp. because it stands out in a mediocre year.
