Sleight of Hand Spiders from Mars Syrah 2018

Sleight of Hand Spiders from Mars Syrah 2018

This outstanding, one-of-a-kind Syrah bottling is sourced from the Ziggy Stardust Block of the Elevation Vineyard which is set on broken basalt. Aged on the lees for 26 months in entirely used French oak, this underweight 100% whole cluster fermentation. Showing off a deep core, this opens with shades of iodine and green peppercorns that mingle with Umami, creosote and cigar ash. The complex and novel aromatics bring you back to the glass for more delight. The soft mouthfeel here really entices as a deep core of dark fruits mingle with crushed wet gravel, blood orange zest, scorched earth, fresh thyme and smoky minerals. With more air, the dark fruits become more rich and pronounced. The length is exceedingly gratifying. Spectacular to enjoy in its youth, this is the best ‘Spiders From Mars’ Syrah to date that is highly novel, complex and delicious to savor in its youth. - 94pts, Jeb Dunnuck
