"The 2005 UPSLOPE Syrah represents the best 6 barrels in the winery for the vintage. It contains the best wine from each Thompson, Bien Nacido, and Verna’s vineyards wine lots. Now in its third vintage, it is deep and extracted, but with elegance and smoothness that only careful blending can produce. It is a statement – our highest ideal of what fine Syrah can and should be. (142 cases produced)"

94 points "Sleek and focused, with a complex, layered mix of spice, dried berry, hazelnut, fresh earth and floral, peppery scents. Full-bodied, intense and concentrated, this is notable for its finesse and refinement. Drink now through 2020. 144 cases made. –JL" Best 2010-2020
