Robert Parker 94 Points:” Certainly the 2013 Syrah Estate, which is more expensive, is another animal all together. This spent 33 months in 100% French puncheons and barriques and is a flavorful wine with a dense purple color, a kiss of steak tartar, white flowers, blackberry and olive. Dense and full-bodied, it hides its oak aging well and has a nice multilayered mouthfeel and finish. Drink over the next decade.”

 

Winemaker Notes: ‘As dark and masculine as ever, in 2013 the vintage also brought a surprising elegance to the wine we had yet to experience from this bottling. While the 2012 came out of the gates brooding and bit backwards, the 2013 is immediately charming and approachable with all the classic hallmarks of Syrah dominating the wine — dark, brambly fruits, scorched earth, fresh-cracked pepper and asphalt. The terroir of our mountain vineyard remains on display with white flowers, menthol and lavender creating beautiful complexities and brightness to the bouquet and palate.

 

As with all of our Syrahs, this wine began its life with a depth and ferocity that foretold greatness if given the proper patience. Employing many of the lessons we have learned across vintages, in addition to bringing larger format puncheons into our Syrah barrel program, what arrives in bottle is a beautifully polished wine built for drinking today, or a long, rewarding life in the cellar.”
