Wine tasting notes

The 2015 Syrah Case Via opens to an inky dark appearance with purplish and blackish hues. This is a gutsy and savory wine that offers a swift kick of aromatic intensity. Dried blackberry, plum, spice, leather and bitter chocolate peel back in thick layers. Yet, despite the heat of the vintage, you might mistake this wine as being from a cooler growing season. The fruit is tight and focused. The finish offers bright acidity that is not common to Syrah from other parts of the wine world. Those cool Panzano nighttime temperatures and higher altitudes have left their mark here. Give this wine an extra year of bottle aging to allow it to flesh out further.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2009) - 91 pts

The 2009 Syrah caresses the palate with generous blueberries, blackberries and French oak. There isn’t much varietal character or nuance here, instead the wine impresses for its silky tannins and creamy, expansive finish. Today the 2009 is all about fruit. With time in the glass, some hints of varietal character come through, but this remains a relatively soft, fruit driven vintage for the Syrah. It will be interesting to see if the full range of varietal notes develops. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Wine Spectator (2007) - 91 pts

Issue: Oct 31, 2010. A smoky wine, with light toasty meat and dried dark fruits. Full and velvety. Tight but very pretty. Best after 2011. 833 cases made. ?JS.
