RP96-98: Not yet bottled, the 2008 Bone Rock (84% Syrah, 13% Mourvedre, and the rest Grenache) exhibits a chalky minerality intermixed with floral blackberry and blueberry fruit. Some subtle spice is present in this wine, which is made with a high percentage of whole clusters, yet no stemminess is apparent. Unctuously textured, it is one of the thickest and most viscous of any of the 2008s. The wine has profound concentration yet impressive delineation and acidity in the background. This is a massive powerhouse that needs more time in barrel (which is obviously why it hasn't been bottled yet), and should evolve for 15 or more years. This wine is likely to be aged for up to 32 months or more in a combination of wood barrels (very few new), before being bottled unfined and unfiltered by Justin Smith. This wine has a great upside and should have tremendous longevity.
Stored in temperature/humidity controlled cellar since purchase.
Buyer to pay shipping fees and my cost for styrofoam shipping container.
