92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011

Dark purple.  Highly aromatic nose displays textbook syrah aromas of dark berries, violet, pipe tobacco, licorice and olive.  Dense, lush, sweet and fine-grained, with a pliant, velvety texture and energetic red and dark berry flavors.  Finishes seamless and lively, with echoing floral and berry notes.

Superb Syrah!

Good things do indeed come to those who wait! It, along with the Mehlville, has been in my cellar for over three years. This is a big, and excellent, Syrah. Opaque garnet/purple to the rim. Big nose of black fruits initially, with road tar arriving at about 15 minutes. Intense on the palate, but smooth with a long finish. This is a powerful, intense, complex, and well balanced wine. Lots of pleasure here! Solid five stars. I can't wait very long to taste the Mehlville, but I need to try to stretch these out - which will not be easy!

Both the Roll Ranch and Melville sat in the cellar for 3 years before trying them and wow! They have aged beautifully. Well integrated, no syrah heat, great fruit.

Rich, multi-layered and powerful but with no sense of being hot. Absolutely delicious

About California

It is remarkable that an industry essentially less than a half-century old could capture the attention of the American wine-buying public to the degree that California has.

Syrah

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...
