WA 95 AG 92 WS 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - Even better, his 2012 Nuts & Bolts is a smoking 100% Syrah that spent 16 months in 50% new French oak barrels. Full-bodied and decadent, yet never over-the-top, heady or cumbersome, it’s loaded with ripe blackberry, cassis, new leather, white pepper and hints of smoked duck. Drink this hedonistic beauty over the coming 4-6 years, although I see no reason to delay gratification either.
According to Antonio Galloni - A much darker, meatier expression of Syrah emerges from the 2012 Syrah Nuts & Bolts. Layers of blue and black fruit, smoke, tar and licorice hit the palate in an explosive, opulent wine loaded with character and personality. Even with all of its size, the elements are very nicely balanced. The Nuts and Bolts has a bit more overt toast and oak influence than some of the other wines in the range. Nuts & Bolts is a blend of fruit from several sites including Bien Nacido, Larner, Murmer, Presqu'ile, Shadow Canyon, Spanish Springs, Terra Bella and Thompson.
According to Wine Spectator - Exhibits rich, generous, sturdy tiers of blackberry, red berry, plum, graphite and mocha flavors. Holds focus and ends with a deeply persistent, tannin-laced finish. Drink now through 2025. 100% Syrah. Rated 90+
