Rotie Cellars, 2010 Swordfight

75% Syrah 25% Mourvedre- "This is a collaboration which combines 50% Phinny Hill Vineyard made by Spencer Sievers [El Corazon] with 50% SJR Vineyard by Sean Boyd [Rotie Cellars]. Deep purplish colored, it emits sultry aromas of wild blackberries, huckleberries, black cherries, wild roses, lavender and tobacco. The flavors are thick and saturated, coating the mouth with dark fruits, licorice, chocolate, minerals, and graphite. The darkness is tempered by a rich, almost creamy texture (“legs”) that is accompanied by dried cherries, roasted nutmeats and a hint of leather, followed by a thick, chewy ripe tannin finish. Impressive now, but could use another year or so to integrate at which time it should advance to 19.5 points." -Reveiw of Washington Wines
