Review

The 2010 Syrah Vellutini Ranch bursts from the glass with layers of intense, super-ripe dark fruit supported by firm, incisive tannins. Black fruit, spices, licorice and French oak all take shape in a huge, voluptuous Syrah endowed with tremendous depth. There isn't a whole lot of subtlety; instead, the Vellutini Ranch is a wine that takes hold of the senses and never lets up. The tannins need at least another year or two in bottle to soften.
