The IX Estate, located high above Lake Hennessy in the Napa Valley, provides ideal conditions for cultivating world-class Syrah. So dark that it literally stains the glass, this California take on the Rhône varietal is exuberant in character and abounding in blackberry fruit, baked earth, and leather essences. ($250)
