2015 Ardor Cellars ‘Quarternarium Reserve’ Syrah - The wine is sourced from equal parts of the Den Hoed, Lawrence, Red Heaven and Stony Vine Vineyards. The wine underwent roughly 25% whole cluster fermentation. This inky colored Syrah begins with aromatics reminiscent of tangerine, black tea, black cherry and sea salt, showing some really nice aromatic range. Plush and downright voluptuous, the wine shows Earl Grey tea, black olive, black cherry, coffee grounds and smoked brisket flavors. Decadent and delicious, this is smooth and silky. Drink 2017-2027. 94 pts

2015 Ardor Cellars “Quaternarium” Syrah, Columbia Valley ($70)
Comprised of one quarter each of the above four Syrahs (hence the name) this exhibits a deep ruby-crimson color and seductive aromas of wild blackberries, mountain blueberries, cranberries, black currants, crushed roses, bayberry, sweet tobacco, orange peel, lavender, violets and spiced oriental incense. The supersaturated palate is as alluring as the aromatics, with black and blue fruits that are interlayered with the flavors of the four component vineyards, along with intermixtures of licorice, bittersweet chocolate, roasted coffee beans and variegated earth and minerals. On the back, the wine turns chewy textured, yet satiny, with sensations of pressed berries, toasted nut meats, kidskin, recurring dried orange peel and ripe, silky, almost sweet tannins on the two-minute long finish. This encompasses the four terroirs in a way that adds up to more than the sum of the wine’s parts. 19.5/20 points.
