The 2007 Tomorrowland Syrah is a wine of refinement and purity from splendid cool-climate Sonoma vineyards. Rich yet restrained notes of cured meat, dark chocolate, and underbrush coat the palate. Vibrant essences of violets, cooked herbs, Turkish tobacco, and espresso grounds stimulate the nose. Drinking it transports you to a distant dream.
"Dense and chewy, showing exotic earth, tar, wild berry and pebble flavors that are intense and concentrated, still echoing hints of fermentation aromas. Ends with full-bodied, chewy tannins. Best from 2010 through 2016. 647 cases made."
"The dark ruby/purple-colored 2007 Syrah Tomorrowland exhibits more forest floor, blueberry, black raspberry, and cassis characteristics. Rich, full-bodied, and dense with silky tannins as well as a layered mouthfeel, it should be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Even while leading with a hint of bias to ripeness, this wine has plenty of lively, keenly focused varietal fruit on the positive side of the ledger, and it backs it up with notes of black pepper spice and rich earth seasonings that further expand its varietal precision. It is full but not heavy in body, starts with a nice bit of suppleness at the front of the palate and is fairly well-balanced from front to back. Its flavors are deep and polished, and it finishes with fine-grained tannins in support."
Good, sturdy, dependable wine.
