91 points "A rich yet subtle style that balances ripe, intense blackberry, spice, fresh earth and savory herb flavors with a sense of restraint. Full-bodied, structured and layered, ending with detailed flavors. Drink now through 2017. 144 cases made. –JL" Best 2010-2015

"The 2005 Ampelos Vineyard Syrah is once again the biggest, thickest, chewiest, deepest and most primary syrah of the vintage. It has no new oak, yet gobs of tannin. The best designated syrah of the vintage. Only three barrels of this wine were made from first year fruit. This powerful wine is balanced, dark and complete. (80 cases produced)"
