The 2010 Originals embodies Ballard Canyon Syrah: concentrated and rich yet bright and fresh.
93 points, International Wine Cellar (November 2012): “(from the estate’s oldest vines): Blackberry, licorice, wild herb and violet aromas…superb definition and lift to its dark berry, floral, black pepper and mineral flavors…"
90 points, Wine Advocate, erobertparker, Antonio Galloni (August 2012): “…gorgeous mid-palate pliancy in its expressive varietal fruit…"
This Syrah’s compatibility reaches beyond typical red meat pairings and matches perfectly with spicy Asian dishes and lighter fare.
Only 520 cases made. Drink now or hold up to 15 years.
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
