Arrowhead Springs Estate Syrah 2010 is a revelation. This is yet another of my favorite wines from Arrowhead Springs. The wine was fermented in oak barrels with some of the grapes fermented in Puncheon style barrels. The wine was in oak for one year. The flavor is an overwhelming mixed berry stew with blackberries, raspberries, and even a little red currant. There’s also dark chocolate and white pepper both as promised. A fantastic wine. Elegant. Big. Layered. Fantastic.
Arrowhead Springs Estate Syrah 2008 was also spectacular. Again big handfuls of blackberry, dark raspberries, and cassis, and mocha with a big dollop of white and black pepper. Also absolutely impressive!!!
