2010 Skinner Dry Diggings El Dorado Red ($32, 14.8%): Recently profiled Winemaker to Watch Chris Pittenger leads with Syrah here, in this case about one-half, with Grenache, Mourvedre and Petite Sirah, from a mix of estate and notable foothills (Sumu Kaw, Fenaughty) sites. It’s Syrah in inky form, with black salt and plum skin, and a raw chewiness for Petite lovers – balanced with great minerality.”
