Issue #192- Dec 2010 

The 2009 Laborde Double Select Syrah (named after viticulturalist Luis Laborde and his unique vineyard) was sourced from 47-year-old ungrafted vines and aged for 14 months in 50% new French oak. Purple in color with a delectable nose of smoked meat, Asian spices, incense, blueberry, and blackberry, on the palate this layered effort is ripe, succulent, and incipiently complex.
