Estate Syrah Accolades

2012 Vintage

92 Points - 2012 Estate Syrah, Eola-Amity Hills
"Sleek in structure, ripe in flavor, with pepper overtones to the pure dark berry and spice flavors, lingering easily on the expressive finish. Drink now through 2020."
- Wine Spectator Insider

92 Points - 2012 Estate Syrah, Eola-Amity Hills
"As quiet as a Cote Rotie in a cool vintage, this youthful wine is hinting at potential at the moment, giving off scents of smoke and white pepper, as meaty as a chilled slab of marbled beef. With air the wine becomes more floral and pretty, giving over to lavender and smoke. It will need a year in the cellar; then serve with smoked turkey."
- Wine and Spirits Magazine

89 Points - 2012 Estate Syrah, Eola-Amity Hills
"The 2012 Syrah, which comes grafted over Chardonnay vines and includes 10 to 15% whole cluster and none of the Viognier, has a refined, you might say, controlled bouquet with pure blackberry, raspberry, clove and violet scents that neatly intertwine. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannin. There is good depth here, quite foursquare for a Syrah, with a strict and linear, blackberry and boysenberry finish. Give this one year in bottle and enjoy over 5-6 years."
- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

2013 Estate Syrah

Classic Syrah aromas of white pepper, spice, plums, leather, bacon fat and the slightest touch of tobacco leaf, along with a generous amount of dark black and blue fruits.
