Ramey highlights, but not Ramey stardom

Hefty bottle; Ramey labels second to none, "spared no expense". Deep purple-maroon. Very perfumed, but took forever to open up (3+ hrs) - blackberry, some tilled earth, little wild violets, and faint white smoke. Lighter body than anticipated; deep hue belies actual density. Plum attack with herbaceous finish; very fine grain, chalky tannins. Maybe I set the bar too high expecting this to surpass the Shanel bottling, but this was supposed to be elevated. This did not reach that height, but potential in a number of years for stardom if body develops. 91/B+


I'm definitely in the five star group on this one. It's very unusual for Parker and Tanzer to be high on the same bottle, with their very different palates, but after tasting I can understand; one minute, I think the Parker comments are right on, but the next minute I'm in the Tanzer camp. I decanted about half a bottle for two hours and re-corked the other half for tomorrow night. The wine is just fabulous, and I just don't get the "port" comments from the reviewer below. I am a huge fan of Bugay Syrah, but this is better. All is not lost, though, as Bugay's are more affordable. Please keep offering both! 1/16/18: Had the next to last one of these and it was just perfect! Wonderful stuff!


Love that taste bud sensation on the first taste! Lovely!

Just not worth the price

Hmmm... even with an eight hour decant, simply syrupy and impenetrable to oxygen, yet oddly approachable in a port-like manner, as its SWEET dark berry nose leads to a port like taste and finish, as it is somewhere between raisins and berries (like some of the Cali Zins out there). We drank it, and we will pour our something unenjoyable in a second, but I've definitely had some better Syrahs in the $20-30 range versus the $50 this cost.
