Critical Acclaim

"The kinkiest of the Syrahs is the 2005 Bionic Frog which was made with 25% stems. It was aged in Dominique Laurent barrels, 30% new. Purple/black-colored, it has a sexy perfume of earth notes, mineral, spice box, and blueberry. Layered, opulent, and super-rich, the finish just goes on and on"
99 Points

"Lithe, focused and generous with its blackberry, cherry and exotic spice flavors, picking up a stony minerality as the finish turns silky and refined. Each sip turns the wine in a slightly different direction, suggesting this will develop remarkable complexity as it ages. Best from 2010 through 2017."
95 Points

"Bright, full ruby-red. Fascinating nose offers black raspberry, crystallized cassis, mocha, gunflint and black pepper. Wonderfully sweet yet firm-edged and gripping in the mouth, with outstanding intensity to the dark berry, pepper and gunflint flavors. This extract-rich wine really explodes on the back half, finishing with outstanding lift and length."
95 Points
