  • Score: 91 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast The savory, earthy nose redolent with raw meat, soil, balsamic vinegar, pepper and black cherries. Strawberries join the cherries on the palate to create a vibrant juiciness, but with the earthiness continuing through a warm, spicy finish. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media The 2018 Syrah is coy in the glass, with blackberry, cedar shavings and violets forming its bouquet. This is round and cool-toned on the palate, showing polished red and black fruits accentuated by citrus. The 2018 finishes lightly structured and a bit chewy. Licorice hints linger. I recommend another year of cellaring to bring out more aromatic complexity. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2017 Vinous Media Smoke and brown spices blow off to reveal peppery herbs and freshly sliced plum as the 2017 Syrah unfolds in the glass. It’s soft and round with mineral-tinged dark red fruits, all pleasantly lifted by brisk acidity. What this lacks in depth, it makes up for with sheer drinkability, finishing balanced and fresh with a cheek-puckering twang of sour blackberry and citrus. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Wine Enthusiast This opens with dark-skinned fruit, tilled earth and mocha aromas. The medium-bodied palate offers blackberry jam, black pepper and vanilla flavors alongside dusty tannins. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
