88 points "The 2003 Syrah Larner Vineyard exhibits a fruity, enticing, sweet creme de cassis and raspberry-scented bouquet as well as a seamless, seductive personality. One of Jaffurs’ most up-front and velvety-textured Syrahs, it can be drunk over the next 4-5 years. " Best 2005-2010

90 points "Ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of raspberry, bacon fat, smoked meat, violet and lavender; this could be mistaken for Cote-Rotie. Silky on entry, then restrained in the mid-palate and a bit lean on the back, with flavors of dusty dark berries, bacon fat, pepper and brown spices. Finishes with dusty tannins. This doesn't quite deliver on its 93-point nose but offers considerable complexity."
