There are a scant four barrels of the 2015 James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock (97% Syrah and 3% Roussanne), and my money is on this meriting a triple-digit rating in 3-4 years. Incredible notes of crème de cassis, caramelized cherries, cedarwood, salted meat, and loads of flowery incense flow to a full-bodied, powerful, yet seamless red that does everything right. It’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise for 15 years or more.

The soon-to-be-bottled 2015 Syrah James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock (which was co-fermented with 3% Roussanne) was also showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with notes of creamy cassis, blackberries, bay leaf, rich soil and dried flowers. On the palate, it's full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with immense concentration, ripe balancing acids and a fine-grained, stony chassis of tannin. In 2015, yields were less than one ton per acre, so there are a mere four barrels this year. Like the Rocket Block, it should enjoy two decades of longevity.
