Can summarize this note by our friend Maureen's reaction: WOW
We followed an excellent 2010 Turley Zin with this and what an outstanding bottle. My last of three that I had over the years and I'm so glad I'm back on the mailing list after passing on the offerings for a few years. Depth, concentration, elegance, power all can describe this bottle.
Syrah vs. Shiraz - Shoot out of the best (Singapore): Deep purple. Expressive nose of dark berries, spices, jam, bonbon. Everybody guessed new world. Full bodied, lots of fruit and alcohol but with strong but ripe/soft tannins and enough acidity to balance it. For most people on the table this was too heavy as well.
