2011 Horsepower "The Tribe Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (Previously $240)

SKU #1191719 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2011 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard, which comes from a vineyard close to the En Chamberlin Vineyard, offers a classic northern Rhone-like profile of blackberry and black currant fruits, beef blood, iron, liquid mineral and smoked meat. Full-bodied, layered, and fabulously concentrated, with considerable back-end structure, this awesome effort will drink well for over 15 years. (JD)  (6/2014)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Floral aromas and tight raspberry fruit flavors are the first impression. Next come notes of wild game, with blood, herb and a bit of liver pâté. Unique, deep and yet somehow delicate, this has impressive complexity for a vineyard’s first release.  (2/2015)

93 points Vinous

 Good dark red. Deep, musky aromas of strawberry, raspberry, pepper and spices are at once slightly high-toned and precise. Lush and very densely packed on entry, then youthfully imploded in the middle palate, showing terrific inner-mouth tension to its berry, spice and black olive flavors. A strong impression of energy keeps the wine’s sweetness under wraps. This freakishly intense Syrah from young vines should gain in complexity with another four or five years of cellaring. In 2012, Christophe Baron will add a Syrah from the Sur Echalas vineyard. 93+? (ST)  (12/2014)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Broad and spicy, with an underlying streak of black olive contrasting with the plum and currant fruit, this sails against refined tannins in a remarkably harmonious package. Has presence and persistence. Drink now through 2021. (HS)  (4/2015)
