2006 Morlet "Bouquet Garni" Bennett Valley Syrah

SKU #1275886 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full, deep ruby-red. Explosive nose offers crushed raspberry, bacon fat, mocha, menthol, bay leaf, flowers and spiced meat. Sweet and lush on entry, then wonderfully intense in the middle palate, offering a superb combination of lift and underlying spine. As ripe as this is, there's a distinctly dry, youthful character to the finish, which features substantial dusty tannins. Made from 11-year-old vines cropped at about two tons per acre, according to Morlet. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Morlet’s first Syrah, the 2006 Syrah Bouquet Garni, comes from a hillside vineyard in the Bennett Valley. The wine has dense peppery, blackberry fruit intermixed with some lard and truffle-like notes. The wine has terrific fruit intensity, full body, sweet tannin, and low acidity. Morlet told me this is essentially a warm vineyard in a relatively cool-climate zone... This is an impressive debut from one of the up-and-coming new superstars in California. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There's lots of spice, red berry and black cherry fruit in this elegant, stylish offering, which ends with a nice mix of tar and earth. Dense and concentrated. (JL) Inner quote mark (12/2008)
