92 points "Dark purple in color and stunningly huge, with fresh young fruit, this is a thick, glyceriney Syrah stuffed with blackberry jam, espresso, cinnamon, dark chocolate and peppery notes. So fruity and so rich, but it’s also a tannic wine that will benefit from a few years of age. A Cellar Selection — S.H. " Best 2009-2015

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 "Rustic and earthy, dense and concentrated, with a leathery road tar edge to the dried dark berry flavors. Distinctive and potent, this packs in lots of flavor, framed by sturdy tannins. Drink now through 2017. 344 cases made. –JL" Best 2010-2017
