96 points "From a cooler year, the 2005 Syrah Seymour’s Vineyard exhibits a more European personality than the classically Californian 2004. The 2005 reminds me of a broodingly backward, dark purple-colored Hermitage from the northern Rhone. Aromas of scorched earth, creme de cassis, truffles, and graphite emerge from this cuvee. With remarkable density, structure, precision, and freshness as well as sensational equilibrium (despite its weight and intensity), it should be at its finest between 2012-2025+. (96+)." Best 2012-2025

94 points "Intense, firm and structured, with spicy white pepper, sage, dried herb, mineral and dusty berry flavors that are compact, focused and full-bodied, ending in a tight, tannic finish. Best from 2010 through 2017. 250 cases made. –JL" Best 2010-2017
