IWC 91+ WS 91 W&S 90 Pts - According to Stephen Tanzer - "Saturated bright ruby. Reticent, high-pitched aromas of black raspberry, kirsch, licorice and violet, complemented by some sweet oak. Very ripe, dense and smooth, showing an almost liqueur-like quality to its black cherry and saline flavors. Not at all overly sweet but the tannins are suave and fine-grained. This has enough juicy energy to expand in the bottle. As in most recent vintage, a terrific value in Washington Syrah."
According to Wine Spectator - "Focused, dense and polished, with blackberry, cherry and floral flavors on a glassy, smooth texture, lingering easily and showing some transparency on the finish. Has intensity and grace. Drink now through 2018."
According to Wine & Spirits - "Ex Umbris is sourced from four vineyards, including Red Willow and Destiny Ridge. It’s a full-bore syrah that’s equal parts fruity and savory—chunky black raspberry and cracked peppercorn—with a depth and intensity that will please lovers of big-shouldered syrah."
Tasting Notes - "The 2012 Ex Umbris is a great expression of the bold fruit flavors from that year. Bursting with aromas of red plum, blueberry and pink peppercorn. The palate is filled with refreshing flavors of fresh summer blackberries, currant, and dark chocolate with noticibly structured acidity and silky tannins." 14.1% ABV.
