Dramatically different, with more richness and concentration, the 2010 Quivet Cellars Syrah Kenefick Ranch nevertheless still holds onto the purity, detail, and energy shown in the Las Madres.

Coming from the Kenefick Ranch Vineyard (located near Araujo's Eisele Vineyard) and also 100% Syrah, it has loads of ripe black fruits, smoked earth, mineral, and background meatiness that comes through with time in the glass.  Medium to full-bodied, rich, and concentrated, yet also beautifully textured, detailed, and pure, it will drink nicely for 8-10 years, if not longer.
