2014 Andrew Murray "Tous les Jours" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Showing incredible depth for such an affordable wine, Andrew Murray does it again with this widely available bottling. The gamy nose shows lamb, rosemary, uncracked peppercorns, light tobacco leaf, soy sauce and a touch of tar. Purple flowers rule the palate, with lavender, violet and blossoming rosemary notes, with thyme and white pepper spicing up boysenberry fruit.

2014 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah New! Top Pick!
2014 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I always love the two blockbuster Syrahs from this estate, both of which need to be sought out by readers. Tons of black olive, smoked and salted meats, as well as ripe dark fruits all emerge from the incredibly polished, elegant and layered 2014 Syrah Estate, which is just an off the hook value. Inky colored, layered, yet graceful and light on its feet, with gorgeous fruit, drink this beauty over the coming 4-5 years, although I wouldn't be surprised to see it evolve for longer.

2013 Copain "Tous Ensemble" Mendocino County Syrah

90 points Vinous: "The 2013 Syrah Tous Ensemble is fabulous. Inky dark blue/purplish fruit, smoke, licorice, grilled herbs jump from the glass.

2013 Beckmen "Estate Purisima Mountain" Ballard Canyon Syrah

94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard boasts tremendous tension and explosive energy. Underlying veins of tannin and acidity, along with a drop of Viognier, give the 2013 much of its freshness. A rush of dark plums, black cherries, mocha, violets, cloves and licorice add nuance on the huge finish. This is a fabulous wine from Steve Beckmen. Steve Beckmen excels with deep, powerful wines.

The contours are a bit angular, but there is nevertheless plenty of depth, resonance and pure power. This is one of the more massive wines in the range, but there is quite a bit to admire in the wine's dark, mysterious personality.

Tar, smoke, licorice and black fruit flow through to the huge, voluptuous finish. Stylistically, the Frei Road is quite different from the other Syrahs in the range, much of which can be attributed to the farming, which is done by the Martinelli family.

Dried flowers, tobacco, mint, dried cherries, smoke and licorice are all given an extra kick of intensity from the early-ripening vintage. It's hard to know where to begin with these wines from David Ramey, as there are so many highlights, but one common theme is the quality of the entry-level wines. The appellation-level Chardonnays, Pinot, Syrah and Claret all deliver serious quality for the money. As always, the Chardonnays are made in a rich, Burgundian- ...Read More »

2013 Cep (Peay Vineyards) Sonoma Coast Syrah

Vinous: "The 2013 Syrah is another pretty, plummy, entry-level wine with lovely fruit to match its mid-weight personality. Drink the 2013 over the next year or two, while the flavors remain bright and focused. The Syrah is the only Cep wine that is made 100% from Peay estate fruit. (AG)" (1/2016)

2005 Pax "Alder Springs" Mendocino County Syrah

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red. Intensely floral on the nose, with outstanding precision and energy to the vibrant red berry and mineral elements. Crisp and bright, with lively wild strawberry and redcurrant flavors underpinned by a refreshing mineral note. There's impressive lift on the finish, giving energy and vivacity and carrying the juicy red fruit flavors." (5/2007) K&L Notes: Praise from Robert Parker: "Exciting wines seem to emerge annually from Pax Mahle, a self-trained winemaker (and all the better for it), and owner Joe Donelan. The 2005s are just hitting the shelf, and there ... Read More »

2005 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Syrah

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The soft, supple, velvety-textured 2005 Syrah reveals notes of blackberries, bacon fat, camphor, pepper, and black olives. (RP)" (12/2007) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium ruby. Knockout Cote-Rotie-like nose offers raspberry, brown spices, white pepper and smoked meat. The seamless palate boasts terrific intensity of dark berry, pepper and spice flavors and wonderfully suave tannins. A wine of exhilarating fruit and cut-an outstanding mountaintop Syrah. (ST)" (6/2008) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Distinct for its wide range of flavors, with a mix of earthy mineral, pebble, leather and beefy, peppery berry ...Read More »

2005 Dehlinger "Estate" Russian River Valley Syrah

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tom Dehlinger is “consistently consistent,” and his wines are always a delight to taste. When you combine that with fair pricing and remarkable humility, this estate merits (and receives) strong support from wine consumers. Dehlinger’s 2007 Pinot Noirs may be the finest he has produced since the mid-nineties (his 1994s are still holding on to life). In his quiet manner, Tom Dehlinger continues to turn out very fine Syrahs, and deserves credit for being one of the pioneers with Rhone Ranger varietals. (RP)" (12/2010) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby color. Powerfully scented bouq ...Read More »
