This deep ruby Syrah combines strength and grace, opening with aromas of raspberry, black cherry and pepper. Lush and seductive, its concentrated fruit flavors are complemented by nuances of dark chocolate, espresso, spice, butter and oak. Sturdy yet refined tannins and a velvety mouthfeel lead to an elegant finish.
This wine pairs perfectly with charred meats and hearty stews. Try it with barbecued spareribs, lamb skewers, or a bacon and blue cheese burger served with sweet potato fries.
"A dark, rich, ripe Syrah that defines the California
style, and preserves the fine structure that this
cool-climate region lends to red wines. The wine
is dry and tannic, and the flavors, of blackberries,
cherries, blueberries, dark chocolate and sweet,
smoky oak, are just delicious. Now and for a few
years. Editors' Choice."

This Syrah is dark, rich & ripe. I detected deep black fruit and chocolate on the nose; Cherries, blackberries, plum jam and almost a sweet, smoky oak...delicious on the palate. It's dry and not overly tannic. Has a pretty decent, medium finish. Not anywhere near as good as the Fess Parker Rodney's Vineyard Syrah, but, overall, a decent Syrah.
A classic jammy syrah. Very sad i can't seem to find this wine anymore.
We ordered a couple of random bottles of wine to be delivered to our hotel. Wine.com delivered on time. When I opened this bottle of wine the aroma was wonderful. The wine is very dark and inky, almost black. It has a lot of fruit at the start. Then some nice peppery spice and fruit on the finish with soft tannins. A very nice surprise I would agree with the 92 rating. Ordered more today.
We tried a bottle and ended up ordering another case.
What a wonderful syrah! Sweet fruit forward with a nice sassy finish.
Should have purchased a case of this excellent value wine. Can't go wrong with this syrah.
balanced, fruit forward, good structure, typical of new worls wine
paired especially well with thanksgiving turkey
This is an amazing full body wine with a nice tannin flavor.
Once this wine breathed for 10 minutes it was great. Do let it sit. Six people at a dinner liked this and commented on it. It wasn't so rich that it overpowered grilled cod.
Nice; but not a wine that will be remembered.
Was expecting more with a 92 rating, I would rate this 85
