2008 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Syrah

SKU #1088994 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A touch more masculine and powerful than the Skyline Vineyard, the 2008 Rhys Syrah Horseshoe Ranch Vineyard shows brilliant aromatics of raspberries, leather, peppered meats, underbrush and violets, all wrapped around a firm, mineral and rocky core. The wine is medium+ bodied on the palate and shows an edgy, firm backbone, solid concentration, and a tannic, structured, and very long finish. Where the Skyline needs a decant to really strut, this could benefit from 3 to 5 years in the cellar, and then it should drink well for over a decade. Inner quote mark (11/2010)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Glass-staining purple. Slow-to-unfold aromas of blackberry and boysenberry, with notes of smoky minerals and violet emerging with air. More compressed than the Skyline today, offering zesty dark berry skin flavors and a sexy note of candied flowers. Becomes more peppery with air and finishes with a strong jolt of dusty minerals and excellent length. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (6/2010)
