BARREL 27 2011 SYRAH "RIGHT HAND MAN" CENTRAL COAST 750mL

As if their white wasn’t good enough (yeah...right!), if the “High on the Hog” was the left hand, then why shouldn’t they have a red as their “Right Hand”? Winemaker Mac Myers (owner/winemaker for McPrice Myers) contributes a little wine from his own project in order to make the Barrel 27 Syrah. So in a sense, here you get a wine that may retail for twice the price! This has been a tremendous sell in the past, so you can expect how incredible the highly-acclaimed 2008 is!

The wine possesses a deep black garnet color and a powerhouse nose of black plum, blackberry and black cherry fruits, with floral elements of lavender, candy mint and violets, followed up by notes of black pepper, tarry creosote, cola berry, blood orange and dried cranberry. The dense, rich mouth is dominated by dark plum and blackberry fruit with flavors of Chinese Black tea, anise/black licorice, rose water, red grapefruit and warm crème brulee. The wine's long finish is dominated by fruit, spice and a long graphite and soil note. Great acidity and excellent tannin provide the perfect structure for the biggest Right Hand Man to date!

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "The 2010 Syrah Right Hand Man is a smoking value that’s loaded with character. A blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Petite Sirah that spent 18 months in 10% new French and American oak, it dishes out fantastic complexity for the price point with cassis, licorice, wild herbs and caramelized meat aromas and flavors all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied, plush and pure, with notable tannin, it’s a serious wine for very little buck. Enjoy it over the coming year or three. Drink now-2016."
