Tasting Notes:
rated: November 15, 2013 , Josh Raynolds, IWC
93 points "Glass-staining purple. Pungent aromas of black cherry, blueberry, minerals, violet, licorice and spicecake. Juicy, supple and perfumed in the mouth, with bright acidity lifting cassis, violet pastille and allspice flavors. Finishes long and gently tannic, with sexy oak tones on the back end. -- Josh Raynolds (93-94)."

95 points "The 2010 Syrah Lorraine Vineyard comes from more sandy, chalky soils, and to me, always shows a more elegant, seamless and layered profile when compared to the burly and masculine Reva. Loaded with notions of black raspberry, toasted spice, vanilla bean and cream licorice, this stunning effort has full-bodied richness, incredible purity and a blockbuster finish. It should be reasonably approachable on release, yet improve for 3-5 years and have 15-20 years of ultimate longevity. (95-97)." Best 2017-2032

95 points "Pure, rich and delicious, with gobs of blackberry, raspberry and blueberry all folding together in a graceful, engaging style. The flavors gain depth and persistence in this long, lively celebration of dark fruit. Drink now through 2028. 280 cases made. –JL" Best -2028
