Critical Acclaim

 A Syrah dominated cuvée that incorporates 95% Syrah with 3% Roussanne and 2% Viognier, the 2014 Dirt Worshipper comes from sites in Santa Ynez, San Luis Obispo county and Paso Robles. Fermented with 100% stems and aged 20 months in 20% new French oak, its deep purple color is followed by classic cool-climate Syrah notes of black peppery, game, blackberries, Asian spice and violets. It's another concentrated, structured, impeccably balanced wine from Yount that needs short term cellaring. It’s going to age beautifully. (JebDunnuck.com)  (8/2017)

 Glass-staining ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blue fruits, incense and potpourri, along with a building Indian spice nuance. Sweet, expansive and seamless in texture, offering deeply concentrated yet lively blueberry and black raspberry flavors and a sexy violet pastille flourish. The floral note carries emphatically through the impressively long, velvety finish, which leaves behind a sweet dark fruit liqueur note. (JR)  (9/2016)

 This pedal-to-the-metal blend offers richness and depth of flavor, with aromas of black raspberry and violet and deep flavors of smoky plum, stony mineral and grilled herb that linger toward gutsy tannins. Syrah, Roussanne and Viognier. Best from 2018 through 2028. (TF)
