Lot #1130. Horsepower Vineyards Syrah The Tribe Vineyard 2011

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 WA.
"The 2011 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard, which comes from a vineyard close to the En Chamberlin Vineyard, offers a classic northern Rhone-like profile of blackberry and black currant fruits, beef blood, iron, liquid mineral and smoked meat. Full-bodied, layered, and fabulously concentrated, with considerable back-end structure . . . . I was blown away by these new releases from Christophe Baron and Elizabeth Bourcier last year when I tasted them from barrel, and I’m thrilled (and relieved) to see them show so well from bottle this go-round. These are some of the most exciting new releases out there today. In addition, their 2012s look even better. As I suggested last year, this is one mailing list spot you don’t want to pass up."
