Syrah, "Jack Robert's Run" 2013

DuMOL

This is without question our most improved individual bottling and a wonderful follow up to the delicious 2012 that won many converts to coastal Syrah. The wine is incredibly complex aromatically with lovely interplay between its fruit purity and the wilder, more savory side of Syrah. The palate gives a swirling, constantly-changing layered impression with ripe wild berry fruit typical of sandy soil vineyards and the savory, complex herbal notes that these old clones and whole cluster fermentation provide. A dash of Viognier in the fermenter kicks up the aromatic detail adding fruit succulence and an airy floral edge.

Reviews

  • "94 points. The 2013 Syrah Jack Robert's Run Gregori Vineyard has put on considerable weight and acquired gravitas over the last year. Tannic and imposing, the Jack Robert's Run shows the more savory, structured side of Syrah. Dark blue and black-fleshed fruits, smoke and lavender find support in beams of salinity that give the wine much of its energy. A closing flourish of floral and savory notes rounds things out in style. The only thing the 2013 needs is time. This is yet another superb and delicious wine from the team at DuMOL." (vinous)
  • "92 points. The 2013 Syrah Jack Robert’s Run offers floral blueberry and blackberry fruit, a structured, tannic mouthfeel, high-toned red, blue and black fruits, and an earthy finish infused with licorice and meaty notes. This wine will benefit from several years of bottle age and keep for 12-15 years." (Wine Advocate)
