HUDSON 2010 SYRAH ESTATE CARNEROS 750mL

Nestled in the rolling hillsides of the Carneros growing region, Lee Hudson has some of the most amazing vineyards we have ever seen! His list of clients who purchase Hudson Vineyard fruit include Arnot Roberts, Bedrock, Cakebread, Duckhorn, Kistler, Kongsgaard, Lewis, Neyers, Nickel & Nickel, Orin Swift, Patz & Hall, and Ramey. The individual blocks within the vineyards are sites of intense varietal distinctiveness. The 2010 vintage seemed to say “It’s all under control” and required minimal intervention. The resulting fruit quality was superb with ideal flavors and aromas. Looking back, owner Lee Hudson says it almost seems like it was easy.

Notes from Paul Roberts, Master Sommelier: There was a microscopic production of the 2010 Hudson Syrah, with only 60 cases produced. A mid August heat spike lowered the yields and each cluster was hand sorted to select only the most perfect berries. The wine shows classic soaring aromatics from this site including roasting meat, cuban tobacco, and dried herbs, with a wonderful dried plum and currant nose. The wine is a middle weight expression of Hudson Syrah that is savory and powdery. Perfectly ripe flavors of damson plum and cassis are highlighted by Provençal herbs. The tannins are powdery and give a peppery edge to the wine. The wine will definitely improve and we would recommend 1-2 yrs for the components to meld. The 2010 Hudson Syrah would be fantastic with toasted pork rack stuffed with truffles.
