Ratings Pedigree:

Critical Acclaim

"Saturated dark ruby. Flamboyant nose of superripe berries, smoked meat, roasted oak and pungent minerals. Lush, full and sweet; stuffed with cassis and smoked meat flavor. Large-scaled and impressively concentrated but also quite silky and stylish. Dusty tannins coat the entire mouth."
92 Points

"There are 150 cases of the 1999 Syrah Seymour's Vineyard. It reveals an opaque purple color along with a classic Syrah nose of blackberry and cassis intermixed with toasty oak, bacon fat, and vanilla. Full-bodied, layered, rich, dense and smoky."
