2010 Carlisle "Papa's Block" Russian River Valley Syrah

SKU #1089763 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Syrah Papa’s Block hits the palate with layers of dark fruit. Wonderfully vivid and alive for a wine of its size, the 2010 is absolutely compelling from the first taste. The addition of 33% whole clusters, along with a dollop of Mourvedre and Viognier, gives the 2010 an element of lift that is rare for such a big wine. A huge, concentrated wine, the 2010 is compelling today, but I imagine it will be even better in another few years. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky ruby. Wild, heady bouquet evokes candied dark berries, potpourri, sandalwood and olive tapenade. Lush, palate-staining blueberry and mulberry flavors show outstanding clarity and intensity, with sexy floral pastille and spicecake nuances building with air. Packs a very serious punch but possesses unlikely vivacity and finishes long and sappy, with strong spicy cut. By the standards of high-end Syrah, from anywhere, this is a remarkable value. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tightly wound, firm, dense and focused, with a classic mix of mocha-laced dark and dried berry flavors, acidity and tannins. Most satisfying on the finish, where the flavors persist. Drink now through 2024. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2012)
