95 Points: Always a Syrah-dominated blend, Spiced currants, blackberries, crushed violets, cured meats, and ground pepper aromas and flavors all emerge from this full-bodied effort, which is brilliantly textured, seamless, and polished, with nicely integrated acidity and tannins. This is another great vintage for this cuvée, and it can be drunk today or cellared for over a decade.
Jeb Dunnuck 94 Points: “Lastly, the 2017 Bossman is mostly Syrah yet includes 17% Petit Sirah, 10% Grenache, and 3% Viognier. This spicy, perfumed beauty offers up lots of redcurrant and blackberry fruits as well as lots of peppery spice, cedar, chocolate, and loamy earth. Medium to full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with ripe tannins, it’s a wild, complex Syrah blend to enjoy over the coming 10-12 years. I don’t think it matches the 2015 or 2016, but it’s not far off and is a stunning wine.”
Winemaker Notes: ”An eccentric gentleman, like the men of early car racing – Confidently humble, determined and patient, smart, beautiful (but not in the Hollywood or GQ sort of way), generous…probably in his mid-fifties but not the sort of 50’s that we’d find in a Viagra commercial and also not the Dos Equisman (though I like him very much). As a wine, this just about has it all – a dark brooding core enrobed by bright and vibrant energy and an incredibly generous manner. It is as pure and lively an expression of Syrah as we’ve been able to coax from nature and put in a bottle – beautiful now and promising a long interesting life ahead.”
