|"Thick and voluptuous, tasting of black cherry and cassis, with excellent depth and intensity. It’s sleek and supple, yet at the same time deep and polished, with impressive minerality, and a bottom note of granite-like rock." Unfined & Unfiltered/PaulGregutt.com (Gregutt also reviews for Wine Enthusiast)
93pts Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
"The nose is more brooding and on the palate the wine is more structured. There is plenty of ripe savory fruit and enough fine-grained tannin to support 2-3 years of cellaring. Drink it through 2020."
93pts & Editors' Choice Wine Enthusiast
"First you smell chocolate, then it quickly shows a piercing minerality, with tart boysenberry and pomegranate fruit. Dense without being heavy, it has compact layering that shows especially
in the aromatics. A subtle, refi ned, elegant wine that does not feel at all like its 15% alcohol."
Part crushed lavender and violets, part gravel pit. Silky smooth. Totally fresh. A remarkable cool climate syrah.
