The fruit was handpicked and fermented as a combination of whole bunches, whole berries and crushed. The whole bunches contribute aromatic lift and spice, and in 2016, Sussman used 20% in the blend. Pumpovers are gentle, and as with all Radio-Coteau's reds, only the free-run portion of the juice is used. Maturation was for 18 months in 500-litre puncheons, one-third of which were new. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

The 2016 Syrah Dusty Lane has started to come around beautifully since I last tasted it in barrel. Dark and unctuous on the palate, the 2016 has more than enough fruit to stand up to its formidable tannins. But that is just the beginning. Black cherry, chocolate, leather, licorice and spice all build as this ample, full- bodied Syrah gains volume in the glass. Wonderfully complete and memorable, the 2016 is deep, persistent and exceptionally beautiful from start to finish. In a word: superb.

From the same vineyard as the Dierke Pinot Noir, the 2016 Syrah Dusty Lane comes all from the Alban clone and was brought up in one-third new barrels. It's another Côte Rôtie styled wine that has lots of raspberry fruit, some savory herbs and pepper, and a hint of graphite. Medium-bodied, silky, and elegant on the palate, with ultra-fine tannins, it has plenty of structure and will benefit from short-term cellaring.
