"The 2004 Syrah “En Chamberlin Vineyard” is Cote-Rotie-like in its racy style. Beautifully perfumed with aromas of bacon, sausage, truffle, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur, this super-concentrated effort is impeccably structured for the long haul."

"Superpolished, big and ripe. A lavish mouthful of cherry and plum, with a whole shelf of fresh spices that sail on and on. An earthy note adds interest to the aromas, and a distinct mineral undertone emerges strongly as the finish persists beautifully."
