E11even Wines Purple Haze 2006: Andrew Murray's side project stars this Côte-Rôtie–inspired blend of 90-percent syrah softened by 10-percent viognier, which Murray believes “put a spell on” the red juice. It's lighter on the tongue like an Old World wine, but much more vibrant, too, with spice, blood, cherry, and chocolate swimming around. See andrewmurrayvineyards.com.
