"This own-rooted block is usually blended into Peter Hunken's larger bottling, but this extra-special vintage thankfully got its own stage. Dense boysenberry, black peppercorns, asphalt, charred lamb, dried violets, lilacs and lavender show on the tarry yet floral nose. The palate is zesty with acidity but deep with flavor, offering thyme, soy, rosemary and more peppercorns. It's ideal for a lamb or game dish."
"This block of Syrah is typically blended with the two other blocks to make up the “regular” Holus Bolus Syrah. 2014 was the 5th vintage working with these vines. These own-rooted vines always grow smaller, and produce smaller clusters. In 2014 Peter and Amy isolated 100 cases of the own-rooted Alban clone of Syrah. The wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks, over the course of 16 to 18 days. It used 25% whole clusters to add to the texture and mouthfeel of the wine. Aged for 14 months in 2 to 4 year-old barrels, mostly 300 liter and 350 liter. Aromas that are reminiscent of black olives, rosemary and smoke. 150 cases produced." -Winery
