21 Colibri Syrah Clone 174
In 2010 the Colibri Syrah Clone 174 became one of two wines from Arizona that broke the Wine Spectator 90-point barrier for the first time (the other was a Colibri Syrah Clone 99!). Year-in, year-out, this block produces the most rustic, classically French styled Syrah in our whole portfolio. In 2021, this was my favorite Syrah in the cellar. Classy, mid-weight and unmistakably old-world, this gem has perfect balance with dark-dry fruits, anise, white pepper, ash and hints of parking lot asphalt after a rain. It leaves my mouth watering and my soul craving for more: which is what a great wine should do!
