2014 S.C. Pannell Syrah Adelaide Hills South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, open-fermented with 15% whole bunches, matured for 12 months in large-format French oak. Spicy, peppery notes are liberally sprinkled on the expressive black cherry fruit of the bouquet, the sheer volume of that fruit not imperilling the medium-bodied nature of the palate, simply setting the scene for the remarkable drive and intensity of the finish and cleansing aftertaste." (8/2016) 95 points James Suckling: "A very handy follow-up to the previous vintage which won the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy, in fact, this could be a nose in front in terms of quality.

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.

2013 Melville "Verna's" Santa Barbara County Syrah Top Pick!
2013 Melville "Verna's" Santa Barbara County Syrah

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is likely the last vintage from this vineyard, which the family winery seemingly mastered in this bottling. There's an underlying umami-driven smoked meat backbone to the nose that also shows bold cherry blossom, olallieberry, pepper, dried herbs and blackberry-soy sauce. The palate is complex yet doesn't overpower, with bits of purple flowers, blueberry, black pepper and menthol. (MK)" (12/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another blockbuster is the 2013 Syrah Verna's, which comes from a vineyard located north of the Sta. Rita Hills, near Los Alamos.

The sneakily long finish presents heft and cut. (Insider - 08/2014)" 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fully blended and about to be bottled, the 2010 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde is more serious, with obvious structure and density.

96 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Slightly turbid/cloudy rim to the colour, although the hue is bright; it's very clear this has been made from an exceptional parcel of estate fruit, for it has an elegance and length not commonly found in the Clare Valley; likewise, its range of spicy red fruits merging with gently savoury/earthy nuances is exceptional." 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This is wonderfully complex and aromatic, with scents ranging from baking spices and savory beef to mixed berries.

Delivers a steeped feel through the finish, with a long charcoal thread. This is quietly always one of the smartest buys in high-end Northern Rhône reds. Best from 2016 through 2025." (9/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More brooding and backward, the 2010 Hermitage has closed down considerably since I tasted it last year.

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. Beckmen's estate vineyards are in Los Olivos and on Purisima Mountain in Ballard Canyon. I was impressed with what I tasted this year. In particular, the 2013 Syrah ...Read More »

An estate-grown wine blended from different blocks within the Hentley Farm vineyard.

2013 Sons of Eden "Romulus" Old Vine Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "From three low-yielding vineyards, extended fermentation with different approaches, matured in mainly new American hogsheads for 20 months. The come-hither message of the bouquet leads into an even more seductive palate with folds of velvet and satin around dark cherry and plum fruit, soft tannins a constant undertow." (8/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Romulus delivers a gorgeous nose of blackberry tart, crème de cassis and mocha with suggestions of spice cake, cloves, incense and hoisin.

A dollop of whole clusters adds gorgeous aromatic/savory overtones. Drink this juicy, lifted Syrah over the next few years. This is a terrific showing from Copain, not to mention a tremendous value. (AG)" (1/2015) Wine Spectator: "Offers lively acidity and a tight focus, with accents of cherry and cranberry plus spice and herb. Crushed stone notes underscore the dry tannins.

A young beauty showing excellent harmony and integration, making it so approachable now but will no doubt age with grace." 93 points Bob Campbell: "Few wines manage to be rich (big, mouth-filling and mellow) and vibrant (tangy, bright, fresh and full of energy) but Craggy Range Syrah somehow manage ...Read More »

Seamless and sexy, with pure creme de cassis, blackberry, smoked earth, crushed flowers and hints of violets, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, no hard edges and a great finish.

The wine is surprisingly appealing now, partly thanks to a strong core of sweet fruit, but will obviously benefit from cellaring."

2013 Hitching Post "Big Circle" Santa Barbara County Syrah

Frank Ostini's Hitching Post restaurant became a huge tourist destination after the movie Sideways, which afforded him the freedom to focus on his passion: making fun, easy-drinking, food-friendly wines. Though Pinot may be the star of his portfolio, and indeed of the Santa Barbara region, Syrah thrives in the cool, coastal climate. His Big Circle has both the racy acidity from a long, cool ripening season and the body and ripe fruit from all that brilliant California sunshine.
