WA 96 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The inky colored 2013 Syrah Susan's Hill comes from a tiny hill in the Pisoni Vineyard, which is easily one of the top vineyards in the appellation. The 2013 shows more refinement and purity than past vintages, and gives up terrific, granite-like influenced minerality, sweet cassis, plums, and licorice aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, multi-dimensional, elegant, and seamless with sensational purity of fruit, it's a distinctly California-styled Syrah that has both richness and elegance. It will drink well for another decade.
According to Josh Raynolds - Bright purple. Heady aromas of ripe red and dark berries, violet, sandalwood and potpourri. Sweet black raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors show impressive energy and focus, with a sexy floral pastille nuance emerging on the back half and gaining strength on the very long, incisive finish. Tannins are gentle and slow to build.
According to Wine Spectator - A graphite-accented minerality shines in this brooding red. Densely structured and well-focused, with notes of blackberry, smoky herb and leather. The tannins are big but ripe. Needs time. Best from 2018 through 2023. 14.3% ABV.
