88 points "A blend of a number of western Sonoma County Syrah vineyards, the 2004 Syrah Las Colinas exhibits elegant, meaty, peppery, berry fruit along with hints of black fruits, licorice, smoke, plums, camphor, and earth. Drink this supple-textured 2004 over the next 4-5 years. This was the first opportunity I have had to taste a comprehensive line-up from new kid on the block, Eric Sussman. Sussman appears to be on a fast track to success with his hand-crafted, vineyard-based Pinot Noirs, Syrahs, and Zinfandels. All of the following wines are fermented with native yeasts, aged on their lees in French oak with no racking, and are bottled without fining or filtration. The vineyard sources are all cool climate sites west of Highway 101 in western Sonoma County. " Best 2005-2010

89 points "The 2004 Las Colinas, sourced from different Syrah vineyards, offers aromas of blackberry, earth, pepper and smoke and a good core of cassis fruit, toasty oak, and licorice on the palate. Elegant rather than saturated, it exhibits full ripe tannins and a lovely lingering finish."
