Even more perfumed and lively than the 2010, with similar pepper, black raspberry, wild herbs, olive, and game qualities, the 2011 Quivet Cellars Syrah Hulda Block Las Madres Vineyard is medium-bodied, elegant, and beautifully balanced, with plenty of juicy acidity, chewy tannin, solid length.

It too is a knockout cool-climate Syrah that will drink well for 5-8 years.
