The 2015 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard is also gorgeous, with lots of gravely/mineral notes intermixed with pepper, beef broth, currants and spice. It’s slightly more structured and tense than the Sur Echalas Vineyard, but has a similar level of purity, precision and length.

Of these three offerings from Horsepower, the 2015 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard will require the most time, as it's the most tight-knit at this early stage, slowly unwinding in the glass with savory aromas of raw cocoa, tapenade, nori and ripe blackberries. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a rich chassis of satiny structuring tannins and a layered, umami-laden core of fruit. At 13.6% alcohol, it's also beautifully balanced.

Distinctive and expressive, with a rich and complex core wrapped in bold bacon fat, blueberry, violet and crushed stone accents that take on momentum toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2026. 519 cases made.
