Tasting Notes:
rated: November 13, 2006 , Wine Spectator
92 points "Elegant, with a smooth, supple core of cherry, currant and pomegranate fruit that gets a lift at midpalate and finishes with a strong display of dark-fruit flavors. Smooths out and gains richness on the finish, with a dash of heat. Drink now through 2009. 184 cases made. –JL " Best 2006-2009

94 points "92-94pts. The 2003 Syrah Lauderbach Hill, from a vineyard farmed by Lee Martinelli, was cropped at two tons of fruit per acre, and spent time in 100% French oak, of which 40% was new. No shy Syrah at 15.9% alcohol, it exhibits great intensity as well as a tremendously sweet bouquet of crushed rocks, creme de cassis, blackberries, and flowers. A full-bodied, opulent, exotic effort, it should drink well for a decade or more. As I wrote last year, this is an exciting winery run by one of the youngest, most talented new breed California wine babies. The efforts to date have been terrific wines that beg for attention.
