TN: 2011 Quivet Cellars Syrah Hulda Block Las Madres Vineyard

Posted from CellarTracker

Yup, Bob…sounds about what I’d expect. I’ve not had any of the Quivets, but everything else from LasMadres
has always been great. Lots of black olive tapenade & black pepper notes. One of the great cold-climate Syrah vnyds
in Calif.

The olive was the defining characteristic of the vineyard for me back 8 or 10 years ago, particularly when TRB was making the wine at Nicholson Ranch. I loved it, my wife not so much. I haven’t noticed it as prominently in the Quivet wines.
