Sleight of Hand has done it again – 2016 Psychedelic Syrah – Limited Release

Our friend, Trey Busch, has allowed us a limited allocation of the amazing

Sleight of Hand Cellars

2016 Psychedelic Syrah

Coming all from the Stoney Vine Vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley and ageing in 25% new French oak, the 2016 Syrah Psychedelic is ruby/purple-colored and loaded with notions of currants, tapenade, lavender, and tobacco. It’s full-bodied, deep, beautifully concentrated, and layered, with an expansive, sexy style that’s hard to resist. It will keep for a decade.

Very Limited

Powerful, Rich Barolo from Baudana!

The Vajra Connection

The Baudana family have tended to the Cerretta and Baudana Cru’s in Barolo for over 30 years! They are one of the oldest families in the Serralunga d’alba region of Barolo. In 2003, the Baudana family, realizing that they had no children and no heirs, needed to find a steward to continue and elevate the production of wine from these Cru’s. Thankfully, they knew a wonderful family that would be the perfect ones to carry the torch, the Vajra’s. I once spoke about this very subject to to Francesca Vajra the last time she visited St. Louis. She made it very clear that this rarely happens in Barolo. The land that these families own are incredibly precious to them and that land transfers to other families DO NOT HAPPEN. Fortunately, the Vajra’s were entrusted with the estate and have continued to produce amazing Nebbiolo. The 2014 Baudana is an incredibly strong wine. The richness and power that the blue soil provides from the Baudana Cru are very apparent here. What a wine! What a story!

Limerick Lane

The 2016 Zinfandel Russian River Estate is another gorgeous wine from this estate. Plums, sandalwood, Asian spices, and a hint of cigar all flow to a seamless, elegant Zinfandel that shows the class and quality of this vintage. With medium to full-bodied richness and building, fine tannin, it has complexity, texture, and length. Bravo!
