WS 93 WA 91 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Vibrant and focused, this is generous with its fresh, juicy plum, blueberry and spice flavors, with a hint of peppery bacon on the long, vivid finish. Drink now through 2017. 950 cases made.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2009 Syrah Nina Lee is 100% Syrah, fermented with a touch of stem that was added back, that spent 21 months in 35% new French oak. Classy all around and certainly an outstanding bottle of wine, it offers classic blackberry, violet, underbrush and spice-driven aromas and flavors as well as a medium-bodied supple and polished texture on the palate. Balanced, rich and with superb purity of fruit, it should continue to shine for another 4-5 years. Drink now-2018.
According to Wine Enthusiast - A significant expansion in the case production of this wine suggests that fruit from newly planted vineyards is now in the mix. This is a pure expression of pretty boysenberry with a red licorice highlight. A firm foundation of juicy acidity keeps it lively and fresh.
Tasting Notes - 2009 marks another intense vintage of our Nina Lee Syrah, which offers a nose of bright, candied violet and huge yet still fresh and fruity flavors of concentrated blackberry and cocoa. Highly structured and packed with rich tannins, this is a wine to drink now or cellar for future enjoyment. Rated 90+
