The wines are delicious! The 2017s definitely have a riper aromatic than the 2016s, but I rather enjoy that. The tannins are incredibly soft and smooth, making them very open and approachable in their youth. I like to think that the 2016s will ultimately be the better wines, but for the first 5, maybe 8 years of their lives, the 2017s might bring more pleasure, and bringing pleasure is what this is all about!!!

Based on two-thirds Syrah, 16% Graciano, 9% Mataro, 5% Roussanne, and the rest Grenache and Petite Sirah, the 2017 Bone Rock is a powerhouse wine that does everything right. Deep purple-colored, with a rocking nose of chocolate, smoked meat, ground pepper, Asian spices, and spring flower, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a plush, sexy texture, good acidity, and a great, great finish. I’d be happy to drink bottles any time over the coming 10-15 years.

Inky purple. Deep-pitched aromas of cherry preserves, blackberry, fruitcake, exotic flowers and incense on the highly perfumed nose. Stains the palate with concentrated black/blue fruit liqueur, allspice, licorice and violet pastille flavors enlivened by a smoky mineral nuance that builds through the midpalate. Conveys a suave blend of richness and vivacity and betrays no rough edges. Appealingly sweet and expansive on the strikingly long, focused finish, which features resonating dark berry and floral notes and subtly chewy tannins.

The 2017 Bone Rock is a blend of 66% Syrah, 16% Graciano, 9% Mataro, 5% Roussanne, 2% Grenache and 2% Petite Sirah aged in about 60% new oak. Deep ruby-purple, it opens to violets, cassis, vanilla, bay leaves and char aromas. Full-bodied, it floods the mouth with dark, spicy fruits with good juiciness and a youthfully firm but ripe frame, and it finishes long and floral.
