“Robert von Weidlich planted this parcel of syrah in 1999, on a low rise of Goldridge soil in Occidental. The vineyard is now owned and farmed by Eric Sussman, who began converting the property to biodynamics in 2012. This latest vintage is a jazz riff on syrah, its initial volatile notes infusing energy into the wine’s cracked black pepper and tart cherry scents. Cool and tense, it unfurls with grace, suggesting the benefits to come with bottle age.”
