Jeb Dunnuck 97 Points: “A ripe, sexy Syrah from the Napa Valley, the 2018 Syrah sports a deep, opaque purple color as well as a powerful bouquet of blue fruits, peppery herbs, spring flower, bouquet garni, and a touch of gaminess. Reminding me of a classic Côte Rôtie (but on steroids), it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, layered textured, gorgeous purity of fruit, and a blockbuster of a finish. This singular, straight-up gorgeous Syrah is going to be prime drinking over the coming 8-10 years, although there’s no need to delay gratification.”
Winemaker Notes: “Our 2018 Syrah was grown in the cooler Carneros region of the Napa Valley. This cooler climate lends this wine its defining characteristics. The nose is packed with spices and white pepper, plum, blackberry, blueberry, and red cherry, and underneath, there is a suggestion of grilled meats. The flavors on the pallet are plum, berries, spices, and peppercorn with blueberries and cocoa lingering on the finish. The palate is full and rounded with firm tannin and a beautiful acid providing the backbone and length.”
