90 points "Medium ruby. Subdued but pure aromas of plum, dark raspberry, smoked meat, mocha and spicy, chocolatey oak. Sweet, generous and concentrated, with sound acidity giving it good life in the mouth. The sappy, almost medicinal black cherry, dark berry and licorice flavors show lovely creaminess for a wine so primary. Rich, pliant syrah, finishing with firm, sweet, building tannins and very good length and verve. "

91 points "The dense ruby/purple-hued 2003 Syrah Thompson Vineyard offers white chocolate, espresso roast, and cassis aromas, supple, creamy, chocolaty, black cherry, and cassis flavors, plenty of glycerin, and less alcohol than some of its siblings. Luscious and heady, it should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 7-8 years. " Best 2006-2014
