Dark as a foggy night, lush as a Haagen Dazs vanilla shake, with a structure you could build a winery upon, our Vagabond exudes boundless spicy and peppery flavors.
92 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (7/12): “Big, bold and outgoing with lots of Syrah spice and a clear bent to ripeness, this fleshy, very full-bodied effort counts richness rather than finesse as its principal gift."
91 points, Wine Enthusiast (October 2012): “A nice interpretation of Syrah, this shows fine Napa elegance and structure. Dry and complex, this 100% Syrah has flavors of ripe, crushed blackberry fruit, raw beef, iron and black pepper, with a touch of smoky oak. Try now with beef tartare or carpaccio for something different.”
A mere 175 cases were produced.
