WEATHEREYE Syrah, Red Mountain ‘Estate’ 2020

Todd Alexander has knocked it out of the park with the Estate Syrah from Weathereye. In the glass, it sports a dark purple core with a blueish-tinted rim. Wild blueberry, blue plum, crushed peppercorn, roasted brisket, mountain sagebrush, mocha powder, and scorched clove are wonderfully integrated and beautifully presented. It’s hard to get past the nose because it’s so enticing and gorgeous, but once you do, be prepared for lush huckleberry and black olive tones on the medium to full-bodied palate. Perfect levels of acidity, silky tannins, and a lengthy perfect finish. If you can find this bottle of wine, buy 6 and open one up every other year for the next 12 years. Highly recommended and editor’s choice.
