Rated 94
Wonderful aromas of spices, blueberries, meat and game. Real Syrah. Full body with ultra-soft tannins and fabulous fruit. It is so polished and beautifully textured. Very long finish. Try in 2015.

The 2009 Syrah Bramasole is much better contained in this vintage than the Santa Pia, but this is a grape that flourishes in hot years, so that is not entirely surprising. Black cherries, plums, sage, graphite, tar and smoke are all woven together beautifully in a large-scaled, yet impeccably balanced Syrah. The long, powerful finish is compelling. (Antonio Galloni)

Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 91
Aromas of mature black fruit, tobacco, allspice and mocha unfold in the glass along with a note of tilled earth. The opulent palate offers blackberry extract, dried plum, licorice and chocolate while velvety tannins provide support and give it a smooth texture. Drink through 2019.

Wine Tasting Notes
This vintage is elegant and expresses the true varietal character of Syrah from this region. It is characterized by notes of black berry fruit and tobacco in the nose and hints of liquorice and black pepper on the palate. The wine is supple and enveloping with a long, elegant finish.
