WA 95 Vinous 93 WS 92 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - Another serious, massively fruited, decadent and layered Syrah, the 2013 Syrah Garys' Vineyard sports an inky, opaque color to go with incredibly young, unevolved notes of black and blue fruits, asphalt, big minerality, lead pencil and charcoal. Big, structured, meaty, and concentrated with a full-bodied, massive profile on the palate, it needs short term cellaring but will have 15 years or more of longevity.
According to Josh Raynolds - Vivid purple. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays vibrant black and blue fruit and violet pastille aromas, along with suggestions of incense, olive paste and cracked pepper. Alluringly sweet and concentrated, offering palate-staining blueberry and cherry-cola flavors and a subtle touch of candied licorice. A vanilla note comes up on the youthfully tannic finish, which hangs on with outstanding tenacity and repeating sweetness.
According to Wine Spectator - Combines power with sleekness and depth. Bold aromas of blueberry and violet lead to rich flavors of blackberry, smoky pepper and lead pencil. The tannins are big, but balanced and ripe. Drink now through 2022.14.2% ABV.
