2013 BMT Syrah (95 points, The Wine Advocate)
The 2013 BMT Syrah is made up of 50% Rodney’s Vineyard Syrah, 25% Colson Canyon Syrah, and 25% Colson Canyon Grenache. This blend has been an ever-evolving one for us in the past but this year we kept the same blend as in 2012. The Rodney’s Syrah for this wine comes from old vines and delivers structured notes of earth, minerals and rich fruit. The Colson Canyon Grenache lifts the wine with slightly higher acidity and bright notes of red plums and raspberries. Finally the Colson Canyon Syrah rounds out the blend with its supple, velvety texture, hints of red meats and chocolate, and touch of pepper and spice. As with all the 2013’s, this wine is drinking well now but will easily age up to 10 years.
