93 points "A Hermitage look-alike from Santa Ynez, Koehler’s full-bodied 2005 Syrah possesses notes of road tar, spring flowers, blueberries, crushed rocks, and creme de cassis. With high tannin, layers of flavor, and superb purity as well as depth, it represents a beautiful combination of Santa Ynez’s ripe, pure fruit and the structure and muscle of a great Hermitage from France’s Rhone Valley. I’ll be anxious to see how this cuvee evolves over the next decade or more."

88 points "Marked by spicy smoked bacon, dried currant, sage and dusty berry notes. Complex and concentrated, this firms up and shows its tannic muscle at the end. Gains on the finish. Drink now through 2014. 1,068 cases made. –JL" Best 2011-2014
