Critical Acclaim

"The normal cuvee of 2005 Syrah Cailloux Vineyard has an alluring perfume of spice box, meat, game, and blueberry compote. Opulent yet elegant, this hedonistic effort will benefit from 4-6 years of cellaring and provide pleasure through 2020."
97 Points

"Good bright dark red. Raspberry, pepper, woodsmoke, spices and dried herbs on the highly nuanced nose. Darker in its fruit character than the special Wallah Wallah bottling and less perfumed and expressive today in spite of its silky sweetness. Not especially creamy right now but boasts terrific lift toward the back and palate-staining length. Already delivers great appeal, but needs time to lose some of its baby fat."
94 Points

"Distinctly spicy, with a panoply of dusky, sweet and savory spices that wrap around a tight core of blackberry fruit, veering toward black tea on the finish. It all hangs on a lithe, supple structure that's more elegant than most Syrahs. Best from 2010 through 2015."
