Expert Reviews

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2014

(15.8% alcohol; a 96/4 blend of syrah and petite sirah):  Saturated full ruby.  Pungent, expressive aromas of blackberry, minerals, spices and game.  Densely packed, concentrated and sweet, showing very good energy to its dark berry and licorice flavors.  Finishes with sweet tannins and lovely length.  Wears its high alcohol gracefully and comes across as a bit more serious than the equally strong 2009 bottling.
