2012 Morlet "Bouquet Garni" Bennett Valley Syrah

SKU #1195812 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Luc Morlet further demonstrates his genius with his Syrah called Bouquet Garni from Bennett Valley, which is bottled without fining or filtration. There are only around five barrels (125 cases) of this 100% Syrah that tastes like it includes some Viognier in the blend (because of the floral and lavender notes). The 2012 Syrah Bouquet Garni offers up fabulous notes of black truffles, lavender, roasted herbs, graphite, blackberries and meaty charcuterie. Other than a handful of Syrahs from Sine Qua Non, this French-tasting Syrah is the closest thing I have tasted to Guigal’s famous Côte Rôtie La Landonne. Drink this sensational Syrah over the next 10-15 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Syrah Bouquet Garni, from a site in Bennett Valley, is deep, powerful and explosive, with huge fruit and terrific overall intensity. Black cherry, plum, spice, lavender and sage are front and center. Voluptuous, racy and ripe, the Bouquet Garni offers notable intensity from start to finish. Wilder, gamier notes develop with time in the glass. This is a super-classic Luc Morlet wine built on power and intensity. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Perfumed aromas of blackberry, menthol and spices are lifted by lavender and violet and complicated by meaty and black olive nuances. Dense, full and rather powerful, with noteworthy breadth to its black raspberry and pepper flavors. Firmly structured, backward syrah with spicy, peppery tannins. 92+ (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)
