The 2018 Syrah Californio Hyde Vineyard is dark and explosive in the glass. Ripe red cherry plum chocolate leather and licorice open first followed by more typical Syrah notes of black pepper game tobacco incense and leather that add a striking upper register. The 2018 was done entirely with destemmed fruit yet it has plenty of savory energy. I must admit I am generally not the biggest fan of Syrahs from Hyde but the 2018 is a flat-out stunner. (Drink between 2026-2038)

It really smells like Cote-Rotie with purple fruit grilled meat tar ink and oyster shell. Blood orange too. Medium-bodied with firm tannins and asphalt. Wonderful length and polish. Long and very precise. Gi
