16 High Road, James Berry Vineyard, Magnum

"The 2016 High Road James Berry Vineyard is another gem in the lineup. Based on 60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, and 20% Mourvèdre, aged in 30% new French oak, it boasts full-bodied notes of red and black fruits, cured meats, toasted spices, and ample pepper, with a distinctive meatiness. Rounded, sexy yet also with terrific depth and intensity, it’s already drinking brilliantly yet will keep for a decade or more." 95 pts

"(made with 50% whole clusters) Brilliant purple. Deep-pitched cassis, cherry preserve and incense aromas are complemented by a suave floral note and a hint of five-spice powder. Rich but energetic as well, showing superb focus and spicy thrust to the densely packed dark berry liqueur and violet pastille flavors. Deftly balances richness and vivacity and betrays no rough edges. Finishes on a sexy floral note, displaying resonating dark berry character, fine-grained tannins and striking persistence." 96 pts
