#8) 2016 Delmas Syrah - Following up the stunning 2015 bottling, the 2016 Delmas Syrah is a head-turning wine that takes its seat at the high table in Syrah. Sourced from the highly acclaimed SJR Vineyard, the Syrah connected with 7.25% Viognier in the co-ferment and saw limited new oak prior to bottling. Straight out of the glass, the wine exudes heady aromas of red currant jelly, cigar ash, blood orange rind, horse manure, crushed wet gravel and Asian spices. This stunning nose brings you back to the glass for more pleasure. The palate is silky smooth and seductive. Cran-pomegranate, Mandarin orange, red cherry candy, peat moss and Umami flavors round out the palate. This has incredible range, precision, purity and focus. A heavyhitter of a wine, this lifted and stunning Syrah will cellar well for a decade or more.
