2006 Eric Kent "Kalen's Big Boy Blend" Sonoma County Syrah

SKU #1042842

94 points and Highly Recommended from the Wine Spectator: "Ripe, firm and complex, with wonderful aromatics and generous, full-bodied spice, blackberry, wild berry, cedar, sage and pepper. Tightly focused and well-structured, this ends with a long, full, peppery finish. Drink now through 2015. 325 cases made." (03/09) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid ruby. Deep, youthfully brooding aromas of cassis, blueberry and licorice, with a strong undertone of olive and smoke. Fleshy and sweet, offering sexy black and blue fruit flavors, velvety texture and an exotic floral note. The licorice note repeats on the finish, which is sappy, sweet and impressively persistent. " (May/June '09) All grown up, but with a touch of youthful exuberance, the 2006 "Kalen's Big Boy Blend" is the vinous equivalent of coming of age. The boisterous nose is full of youthful passion, with notes of cherry and pencil lead, earl grey tea and anise. But the graceful palate shows the restraint of experience, with hints of chocolate and soft tannins to complement the juicy black fruit. We recommend decanting this wine now, or cellaring for another year or five.
