2014 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah 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.

92 points Rhone Report: "The 2008 Martinelli Syrah Hop Camp Vineyard "Gravel Lens" (Grave lens refers to the rare soil characteristic of alluvial soil layers interleaved with layers of gravel) is a big, beautifully fruited Syrah that possess touches of northern Rhone like qualities mainly on the nose. Blackberry, cracked pepper, mineral, and hints of chocolate all emerge, and this fleshes out over the evening and gains floral and violets characteristics, as well as notable complexity and a layered profile.

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 Lewis Cellars Napa Valley Syrah

95 points Wine Spectator: "Bold, polished and impeccably structured, with black raspberry and smoky mocha aromas and rich, complex flavors of blueberry, spiced cinnamon and licorice. Tannins ease in and frame the finish. Drink now through 2029" (11/2016) K&L Notes: Randy and Debbie Lewis established their small family winery in Napa back in 1992. Lewis Cellars makes some of K&L's favorite Napa wines--they're always delicious, polished and fundamentally drinkable. The 2014 vintage of their Syrah has not yet been professionally rated, but past vintages consistently score well into the 90s.

The way that the core of delicious fruit is shrouded in thick but soft tannins and threaded with acidity is a marvel. It's tempting to drink now but lay it down until 2018 if possible.

It’s a seriously impressive effort that possesses an inky purple color to go with loads of chocolatey dark fruit, scorched earth and sweet oak-like aromas and flavors.

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.

As with the 2012, it’s a prime candidate for drinking over the coming couple of years. (JD)" (8/2014) K&L Notes: The ninth vintage and one that the winemaker calls his favorite yet.

Shows all the muscle, density, richness and range of flavor found in many Shafer reds, yet takes it to another level in this vintage. The best Relentless yet. Syrah and Petite Sirah.

2004 La Sirena Napa Valley Syrah

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Syrah Napa, which comes from a western hillside vineyard overlooking Lake Hennessey, is a fleshier, deeper blue and black-fruited style of Syrah with some charcoal and tar notes. It is lusher and fuller. (RP)" (12/2007)

2005 DuMol Russian River Valley Syrah

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aromas of black fruits, tapenade, ground pepper, and spice box emerge from the 2005 Syrah Russian River.

In addition, the purity and polish to the fruit and tannin are exceptional. These traits are present in almost all of the new releases from Adam and Fabien, and w ...Read More »
