#76 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
The 2010 Austin Hope Syrah displays a deeply concentrated purple color with aromas of blueberry, cherry and hints of spice and wild herbs. Fresh, juicy berries, plum and red cherry emerge on the palate, balanced by notes of smoked meat and chocolate.
My wife and I found it to be average. Did not live up to the 93 rating nor the top 100 ranking.
