Lastly, the utterly perfect 2012 Syrah Touche reminds me of a great vintage of Guigal's Cote Rotie La Landonne. A blend of 93% Syrah, 5% Petite Sirah and 2% Viognier, all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills, it spent 40 months in 78% new French oak. Deep, concentrated, full-bodied and layered, with a multidimensional texture and to-die-for notes of camphor, cured meats, violets, smoke and assorted dark fruits, this beauty has fine, perfectly ripe tannin and blockbuster length. Give it 3-4 years and drink over the following two decades.

Expressive licorice, mocha and ripe blackberry aromas lead to a well-defined core of refined tannins wrapped in a lush texture, offering smoky blueberry, espresso and cracked pepper flavors. Drink now through 2026. 844 cases made.
