WA 90 AG 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - Showing complex and slightly exotic aromas and flavors of plum pit, bramble, sweet spice and pepper, the 2010 Syrah Head Honcho hits the palate with a fruit-loaded, medium to full-bodied texture that’s reined in by clean acidity and slightly firm, edgy tannin. An outstanding bottle of wine, it should evolve nicely for another year or two and hold through 2020. Drink now-2020.
According to Antonio Galloni - Readers will have a very hard time keeping their hands off the 2010 Head Honcho. Dark cherries, plums, tobacco and leather burst from the glass as layers of flavor fill out the wine's broad-shouldered frame. There is plenty of energy, focus and drive in this gorgeous Syrah from Barrel 27 and proprietor Mac Myers. Today, the Head Honcho is flat-out beautiful.
According to Wine Spectator - A rich, gutsy style, with plenty of stuffing. Tannic and extracted, with dark berry, pepper and dried beef notes, maintaining a rustic personality. Drink now through 2022.
Tasting Notes - Notes of black pepper, garrigue, raspberry liquor, bassalt/granite lead to a concentrated palate of sweet plum, la vender, mint, peppercorn and plum skin with a long creamy, spice driven finish. 14.8% ABV. Rated 90+
