91 points, Wine Spectator (January 31-February 29, 2008): “…dense, rich, massive…loads of earthy, beefy, blueberry and wild berry flavors…turns elegant and stylish on the finish…”
90 Points, The Wine Advocate (August 31, 2007): “…plenty of new oak, crème de cassis, and blackberry fruit…heady, full-bodied, and impressively endowed.”
The Ascent Syrah represents the pinnacle of Syrah production at TERRE ROUGE. Twelve of their very best barrels of Syrah are selected from our cellar each vintage to make just 600/6 packs of this luxury cuvée.
