WE 92 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - The first winery to plant Syrah in the county continues to produce powerful but layered expressions. This delivers rich aromas of cherry, stewed plum and blackberry alongside sage and a wisp of vanilla. On the palate, it starts rich, until bright acidity and tannins bring balance amidst mocha and blackberry jam flavors and an oak-powered vanilla finish.
According to Connoisseurs Guide - It may not be the deepest or most serious Syrah to be had, but this very accessible wine wins endorsement for its available fruit and overall affability. It is ripe and rounded and fairly supple in feel, and it keeps ripe berries in sight at all times. It makes a smooth passage over the palate, and even if finished with a slight tannic pucker, it is not a wine that demands a long stay in the cellar.
According to Wine Spectator - Appealing, with wild berry and toasted herb aromas and zesty, well-layered flavors of plum, roasted anise and pepper. Drink now through 2021.
Tasting Notes - Our 2010 Syrah displays bright blackberry, wild-berry, flowers, mocha, pepper and our signature sage spice. The silky finish lingers from the ripe tannins with a touch of smoky oak. A traditional pairing for this wine is a rack of lamb marinated in rosemary and garlic. 94% Syrah. 6% Viognier. 13.6% ABV.
