Expert Reviews

94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009

($60) Deep, bright ruby. Highly expressive bouquet of blackcurrant and boysenberry, with sexy floral and spice notes adding vivacity. Lively red and dark fruit flavors gain an exotic floral quality with air and become spicier on the back end. Impressively vibrant syrah, with excellent finishing clarity and sweet persistence. As with the barrel samples of '07 that I also tasted, this is more energetic than the Shanel.

Rodgers creek
by Nixon13793451
Great stuff...smokey, dense, wonderful syrah.
heaven in a glass
by Sellers13685290
I hate to give this such a great review for fear there will be a run on Ramey and i won't be able to buy anymore of it! This wine was really outstanding. If you like BIG exotic syrahs then you'll love this. An almost floral nose with spicey and smoked berry notes. I will enjoy this wine for a long time!
Wondrous Ramey !

Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...

Varietal Image

While the grape is currently grown throughout the world, the most elegant Syrahs still come from the Northern Rhone valley, particularly the appellations of Côte Rôtie, Cornas, and Hermitage. Here, steep, terraced vineyards help produce full-bodied, intense, tannic wines loaded with white pepper and red fruit. In the vineyard, Syrah is largely cooperative- vines are productive, but not overly vigorous. Skins are thick, helping the grape...
