93 points "*Cellar Selection* This is the best Potelle Syrah I’ve ever had, but be forewarned: It’s an extraordinarily tannic wine that shows its 1,800-foot mountain origins. It clocks in at 13.9% alcohol, yet it’s bone dry. The fruit is powerfully concentrated in blackberries enhanced with sweet, smoky oak. If ever there was a Syrah for the cellar, this is it. Best now (if you like young tannic wines, but please decant) and for at least eight years, as it gradually mellows. — S.H"

89 points "Impressive for its display of ripe, rich plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit. It's sharply focused, supported by firm, ripe tannins, revealing its concentration and depth of flavor. Best from 2004 through 2012. 680 cases made. –JL WS - Apr 30, 2003" Best 2004-2012
