Fragrances of graphite, blackberries and chalk waft from your glass of this sumptuous Syrah. This is a full-bodied, opulent, rich red with a lovely texture.
90+ points, Wine Advocate, Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Aug. 2010): “…promising nose of acacia flowers, black raspberries, blueberries, and boysenberries…full-bodied flavors, and considerable elegance, purity, and texture… impressive Syrah built for a decade of cellaring…”
90 points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (Nov/Dec 2010): “Pungent dark berry and cherry skin on the nose…Fleshy and smooth in texture, with deep blackberry and mulberry flavors and slow-mounting tannins…The finish is sweet, expansive and long. There are no rough edges or excessive tannins to get in the way of enjoying this wine right now.”
Try this Syrah with almost anything grilled, with lamb is of our favorites. A mere 275 cases were made.
