2017 Horsepower Vineyards Syrah The Tribe Vineyard
Beautiful notes of red and black raspberries, tobacco, plum sauce, loamy earth, and loads of floral notes emerge from the 2017 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard, another tight, closed wine that’s going to benefit from bottle age. Medium to full-bodied, with notable freshness as well as plenty of underlying structure… Beautifully done and one of the standouts in the lineup… –Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com
Smoldering rocks and cigar box tones connect with dark plum and green peppercorns with Umami tones that all take shape in the glass. The palate is fresh, vibrant and incredibly delicious. Ripe dark fruits collide with minerals, seaweed, Spanish green olives and salted meats on the palate. The generous length and wonderful purity of fruit is impressive. Highly gratifying to enjoy in its youth, this beautiful new Syrah will enjoy another decade of life in the cellar. —Owen Bargreen, owenbargreen.com
The 2017 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard begins with a firm, tight nose of rustic dark red fruit and soft aromas of worn leather, black spice and dust-covered violets. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is still tight in its youth, but it remains approachable and food-friendly now. The wine has a bolder mouthfeel than the rest of the range and is balanced with firm tannins that will ensure it will last for years to come. It concludes with a long, drawn-out finish with an essence of dark red fruit and a soft, lingering spiciness. —Anthony Mueller, The Wine Advocate
Intense yet subtle aromas of dried strawberry and black peppercorns with some cloves. Tar as well. Medium to full body. The firm, silky tannins are integrated and poised, melting into the wine. Lovely now, but better in a year or two. Try after 2021. —James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
