WA 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "A new entry level wine and a knockout effort that represents a serious value, the 2012 Syrah Los Padres (2% Viognier) was aged 3 months in neutral oak before being moved to stainless steel tanks and bottling. Showing real Syrah character with lively blackberry fruit, bacon fat, game, violets and hints of rosemary, it is soft and upfront on the palate and delivers loads of character in an easygoing package. It’s a brilliant mid-week drinker and worthy of a multi-bottle purchase. Drink now-2017."
According to International Wine Cellars - "Opaque purple. Smoky cassis and cherry aromas are complicated by cured meat and licorice, with a dusting of spicy herbs. Chewy dark berry flavors show good depth and pick up a strong, palate-numbing black pepper nuance with air. Slow-building tannins give shape to the finish, which leaves notes of menthol and woodsmoke behind. Very syrah, and drinkable now." 14.5% ABV.
