AG 93 WA 91 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2010 Syrah Le Barrettage is the most tannic and backward of the three Syrahs I tasted from Heidi Barrett. Black olives, grilled herbs, menthol, tar and licorice all come alive in the glass. The 2010 stands out for its depth, textural richness and structure. Not a wine for the timid, it needs at least a few years to fully settle down. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."
According to Robert Parker - "The two most serious wines include the 2010 Le Barrettage, which is combination of Heidi’s last name and The Rhone Valley Hermitage. Made primarily from Syrah, it possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of blackberries, licorice, spring flowers and camphor, good balance and richness, and a heady finish. It should drink well for 7-8 years."
Tasting Notes - "This is a high pigment vintage. The wine coats the glass with a very deep ruby blackberry color. Aromas are deep and rich of black plums, molasses, pomegranate, clove spice, venison, violets and other fresh flowers. It is fully ripe and concentrated, dense, lush and mouth coating. Nice layering and a big ripe expression of this gorgeous variety. This is quite a hearty big red wine that is begging for grilled meats, ribs!, steak, venison, duck, spicy sausage, or rich pastas or lasagna. Flavors persist with lovely balance and a long silky finish." 14.6% ABV.
