Can you smell density? Well, I can in one whiff of this very heady Syrah. Compact and powerful. It unleashes black and red fruit, broken stone, iodine, hung meat upon the senses. Iron fist in a velvet glove. A wine for the ages.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Syrah Cattle King leads with expressive red, black and blue fruits on the nose with a density that can be sensed just by nosing the glass. Black cherry, blackcurrant and boysenberry compote all vie for your attention with savory spices and resinous purple flowers. The full-bodied palate is dense with a pedal-to-metal winemaking approach with chewy tannins and supporting acidity. It continues to linger with spice tones as it changes over a 20-30 second period after the wine has left the palate. Just under 500 cases were produced.

Wine SpectatorBroad-shouldered and densely layered, with blueberry flavors, accented by stony mineral and smoky bacon notes and building tension toward big but polished tannins. Drink now through 2025. 499 cases made.
