2008 Peay Vineyards Syrah Les Titans Estate, Sonoma Coast

93 points — Tanzer’s IWC

Bright purple.  Sexy black raspberry and floral aromas are complicated by smoky minerals, Moroccan spices and a hint of licorice.  Silky, alluringly sweet dark berry flavors pack a serious punch but come off as almost weightless, with tangy minerality adding spine and back-end cut.  Gains weight and power with air and finishes with lingering smokiness and a hint of candied violet.  This clocks in at a low 13.4% alcohol but hardly wants for power, depth or ripeness.
