Tasting Notes

A beautiful, elegant red, with milled white pepper and fresh rosemary notes, which are abundantly fragrant on the nose but more subdued on the palate, plus pure accents of ripe black raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, orange peel and dark chocolate. Reveals fine, silky tannins, which emerge to firm the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2033. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Score: 95

Beginning with a floral grip, the 2019 Iron Syrah offers a seductive nose filled with red flowers, wild raspberry and dusty cherry as elegant spice tones waft from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has a fine mineral tension and firm, rocky tannins that lift the mid-palate. As the tannins loosen, the wine uncoils in the mouth, leading to a food-friendly and delightfully fragranced finish. This was made with 100% whole-cluster Syrah, and the wine rested for one year in 50% new French oak. It's delicious!

The 2019 Syrah Iron is a little tighter and more backward on the nose compared to the Schist and Granite, revealing more of a marine influence with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with good structure, a little more savory in style than the aforementioned cuvées and maybe not quite as cohesive on the finish. I might broach this sooner than the others based on this showing.

Lots of extract and concentration, bloody, meaty intensity, top notes of whole bunch spices and a hint of stony reduction.
