87 points "Intense and rustic, with dense, chewy tannins that dominate the core wild berry and chocolate, with hints of nutmeg and cedar, turning austere and dry on the finish. Best to decant. Best from 2007 through 2013. –JL" Best 2007-2013

93 points "The 2003 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard displays the telltale squid ink-like color with some purple hues, and a stupendous nose of pure, black fruits intermixed with minerals, licorice, and incense. Full-bodied, with massively extracted flavors but incredibly well-balanced and vibrant, this wine needs 5-10 years of bottle-age and should age effortlessly for a quarter of a century. "
