WA 94 CG 93 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "The 2012 Syrah Haley’s (15.6% natural alcohol) exhibits copious aromas of blueberries, black raspberries and blackberries, sweet tannin, a full-bodied opulence and a style not dissimilar from the Buffalo Hill Syrah. Drink it over the next decade."
According to Connoisseurs Guide - "Concentrated, fully ripe, blackberry fruit is framed by a wealth of very rich oak right from the first here, and, while a mouthfilling Syrah that is geared to substance and size, this imposing young wine still finds room for complexity. It is rife with varietal pepper and sweet spice, and its shows a fine minerally streak behind its ample fruit with considerable, yet well-integrated tannins for grip. Its sheer generosity impresses right now, but its solidly ageworthy structure guarantees years of very positive growth, and pulling its cork before a half-dozen years have passed would be nothing less than an injustice.
