This wine has a fabulous perfume of violets and lavender as well-grilled meat, game, and blueberry compote. - Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate


It’s an incredibly beautiful Syrah that exhibits lots of saltiness in its cassis and currant-like fruits, licorice, olive brine, and crushed rock-like minerality. These all come together perfectly on the palate, where the wine is full-bodied, layered, and awesomely pure, plus has a killer finish. It’s another monumental effort from this estate that will stand toe to toe with the greatest Syrah in the world. –Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
