Amazingly complex, the aromas of this Syrah range from earthy forest-floor notes to rich game, roasted meats with a hint of black pepper, sweet red cherries and a touch of spiced plums. The entry is smooth and very flavorful and the mid-palate richness tells the story of the vintage: completely ripe and luscious fruit creating layers of complexity.

96 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (Nov. 09): “Rich and ripe, lush and ripe, oaky and ripe, fully fruited and ripe, yes, this wine is unmistakably ripe, and there will be those who refuse to forgive it for that supposed sin...When all is said and done, this is superb wine.”

4 out of 5 stars, The Press Democrat (September 16, 2009) “Wine of the Week,” “Highly recommended”: “A meaty spicy Syrah with deep flavors of blueberry, plum, violet, white pepper and caramel...”

A mere 806 cases were made of this highly rated Syrah.

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