This deep purple wine delivers aromas of ultra-ripe berries and toasted oak with lavender and rose petals. Big and complex but balanced, it is full of blackberries and red raspberries, with notes of mocha, vanilla spice, oregano and thyme.

A fine pedigree. Awards and reviews for this vintage have not been released yet.

Just 850 cases produced. Drink now or cellar up to 2018.

Food pairing: Syrah is phenomenal with anything off the grill, from veggies to meat, lamb, Osso Bucco or pork loin.

This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.

This was an outstanding Syrah. Beautiful color, and fine fragrance. Taste was rich and fruity, finish was rich and lasting. Both my wife and myself thoroughly enjoyed this fine Syrah.     -20 Points out of 20
