Crown + Thieves 2014 ‘The Broken Barrel’ Syrah

This wine was/is one of the most iconic of all the hatch wines ever made and after much soul-searching and attempted accidental on purpose barrel breaking we finally have a worthy follow-up. Grapes came from Saddle Ridge Vineyard, notable for its prime location on the Black Sage Bench right aside from Black Hills and around the corner from the tip (ask a British friend). Aged for 3+ annums in a mix of American oak puncheons unfurls all the meat, smoke and spice you could want all in a hyper-unique fashion truly unique that exact piece of land. This time around though, the only thing that was broken in the process was the winemaker, but that’s a whole ‘nother story. Give this pup a few years in the cellar.

‘The fruit comes off the warm East Osoyoos Saddle Ridge Vineyard, notable for its prime location on the Black Sage Bench near Black Hills and the dump. Look for rich, lifted, spicy, black fruit aromas. The entry is sweet-ish with intense blackberry and peppery notes akin to Barossa syrah. Expect a warm, rich, dense red with lifted blue fruit and a vanilla, American oak finish. Unlike its truly broken barrel predecessors, this wine was aged three years in new and used American oak barrels and puncheons before bottling. 90 points
