2010 Halcon Vineyards Syrah Alturas

Community Tasting Note

91 Points

Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - Decanted on day 1 for about an hour, drank one glass. At that time the star was the nose. Returned to bottle. Day 2: while I suppose I generally prefer more depth on the mid to back end, the overall symmetry and QPR are stupendous. A savory core has enough lift and sweetness to work. Restrained but not austere. Fun to drink across every sip. Cool climate Syrah FTW. Hard to imagine this won't end up being the best $20 wine (with case discount) I drink this year. 91+
