Opaque Verging on opaque ruby-purple. With swirling, notes of blackberry, cassis, hoisin, and milk chocolate emerge from the glass. Very precise on the palate, the wine enters full and rich, offering flavors of blackberry, cherry liqueur, and savory herbs (no doubt from the use of whole cluster). Despite the intensity, the wine closes with plenty of verve and freshness, punctuated by silky tannins in the long finish. Age-worthy. Drink 2020 through 2032

Wine EnthusiastMeaty in wild berry and leather, this is a high-toned wine with a gritty texture that evolves to become velvety in the glass. Generously ripe and rich in body, it's intense and fresh in equal measure, showing a complement of balanced brawn and beauty.

Wine SpectatorDistinctive and dense with personality, offering a firm core of lively tannins and acidity, with complex dark berry, licorice and dried pepper beef flavors. Best from 2019 through 2024.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Syrah Papa's Block is 100% Syrah and finished at 15.3% natural alcohol. This soft, juicy wine has velvety tannins, oodles of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, as well as a touch of road tar and pepper. It is heady, rich, and is aged in 25% new French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Anticipated maturity: now-2025.
