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.

2012 Eric et Joël Durand "Lautaret" Saint-Joseph (Previously $40)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, the 2012 Saint Joseph Cuvee Lautaret sports an inky purple color to go with fabulous notes of ripe black raspberry, cassis, licorice, beef blood and leather. Full-bodied, concentrated and textured, with lots of sweet tannin, it’s a serious Saint Joseph that readers need to buy.

2013 Holus Bolus Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "#6 on Top 100 *Best of 2016, Editors' Choice* Though this bottling is Peter Hunken's least-expensive Syrah, it gives his single-vineyard expressions a serious run for the money for best of vintage. Amazing aromas of chipped asphalt, smoked beef, dense boysenberry, soy, cedar, sandalwood and soy drop into a palate of peppery berry juice, beef jerky, underripe blackberry and elderberry, and pepper-crusted teriyaki beef.

2013 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage

Possessing a touch of modern sheen in its graphite, black raspberry and crushed violet bouquet, this beauty hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a tight, focused, yet gorgeously pure texture and good, maybe not great levels of concentration.

Drink now through 2029" (11/2016) Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Unbridled ripeness simply steals the scene here, and, if the wine is undeniably rich, it is far more directed by chocolate and sweet oak than by specific Syrah spice.

Plush, sweet, broad and fruit-driven, conveying noteworthy energy and definition to the flavors of black fruits, spices, licorice and herbs. Not a wild style of Syrah despite a hint of reduction but this very youthful wine has the backbone to gain in nuance and weight in the bottle. Suave tannins coat the front teeth.

Aged 14 months in 30% new French and American oak, it won’t appeal to those looking for straight up fruit, but it has plenty of charm and should drink nicely for 4-5 years.

2014 Yves Cuilleron "L'Amarybelle" Saint-Joseph Vieilles Vignes

91-93 points Vinous: "(aged in 25% new oak for 18 months): Saturated ruby. Ripe cherry and blackberry on the deeply perfumed nose, complicated by notes of pipe tobacco, violet and candied licorice. Smoky and focused on the palate, offering gently sweet dark berry and floral pastille flavors sharpened by zesty acidity and a peppery nuance. Finishes sappy, gently sweet and very long, offering slow-building tannins and a late hint of cola. (JR)" (3/2016)

2013 Chapel Hill "The Chosen - Road Block" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "Open-fermented, basket-pressed to French hogsheads (12% new) for 19 months. A very expressive fruit-laden bouquet and palate, plum to the fore, blackberry in attendance; here, too, there is excellent texture and structure to a medium-bodied shiraz with perfectly ripened flavours and integrated oak." 93 points James Suckling: "A single site shiraz that has a restrained nose that marries dark fruits with more savory and stony elements. The palate delivers an impressive array fo ripe dark berries sitting amid mocha, dark toasted spices and a fine tannin texture. Good depth, drink now t ...Read More »

2014 Qupé Central Coast Syrah

Wine & Spirits: "Bob Lindquist’s multivineyard blend has its typical savory bent in 2014-tobacco, dried herbs, bitter chocolate, tangy acidity. It’s lean and simple, a quaffable syrah for pork chops." (10/2016) K&L Notes: Qupé (pronounced 'kyoo-pay') is the Chumash Indian word for California poppy, and for many, is also the "first word" in the Central Coast area's Rhône-style wines.

2014 Tyrrell's "Vat 9" Shiraz Hunter Valley New South Wales

98 points James Suckling: "A brooding nose, deep inky iodine-like notes as well as dark cherry, plum and redder berries, this is a statement of purity and concentration, really impressive craftsmanship too. The palate has a silky and luscious feel, beautifully realised tannins, velvety, even and flawless, a core of sweet red plum flavor and a long, pure fruit finish. Masterful wine. Drink now and for 15+ years. The 2014 Hunter Shiraz wines are of immense importance. The Tyrrell family is the regional barometer...In particular, the top wines of Tyrrell’s...are as good as they’ve ev ...Read More »

2013 Alban "Patrina" Edna Valley Syrah

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1,080 case 2013 Syrah Patrina, which is the entry level Syrah, sees a higher temperature during fermentation and roughly 20 days on skins, with periodic punch downs. Aged 22 months in two-thirds new French oak, it trumps most estates grand vin. Showing the forward, plush, sweetly fruited style of all of the 2013s here, with notes of smoked meats, violets, caramelized black cherries and cassis, with its oak component pushed all the way into the background, drink this full-bodied, pure, seamless Syrah through 2023. After the cool, and then cold, 2010 ...Read More »

2014 Fromm "La Strada" Syrah Marlborough

94 points Sam Kim: "At a mere 12% alcohol, this is perfectly ripe, fragrant and inviting on the nose with black/blueberry, Black Doris plum, violet and a hint of white pepper aromas. The palate is concentrated and generously flavoured, backed by plenty of supple tannins. Youthful and instantly charming, the wine is approachable yet promises to develop magnificently. At its best: 2017 to 2028." 93 points Bob Campbell: "Bright, fresh and spicy Syrah with floral, violet, white pepper, plum and nutty oak flavours. Elegant supple Syrah that has been co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier to add to t ...Read More »

2013 K Vintners "The Hidden - Northridge Vineyard" Wahluke Slope Syrah

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Reminding me of a Northern Rhone Syrah from the Le Meal lieu-dit on Hermitage Hill, the 2013 Syrah The Hidden Northridge Vineyard comes entirely from the Northridge Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope, was fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in mostly neutral oak. It offers thrilling notes of black raspberries, toasted bread, caramelized meats and licorice in a full-bodied, ultra-pure, supple, incredibly sexy style. Possessing building, fine tannin, it needs a lengthy decant if drinking anytime soon, but this utterly seamless, perfectly balanced beauty ...Read More »

2014 Jeff Cohn Cellars "Domaine des Chirats" Rockpile Syrah

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Syrah Domaine Des Chirats comes from Rockpile. It is a collaboration with Yves Cuilleron from France’s Northern Rhône. This is made from what is believed to be Chapoutier suitcase clones. It is 100% Syrah aged in about 30% new French oak with about 30% whole clusters during the fermentation. Beautiful elegance and complexity with notes of blueberry, blackberry, floral notes, and great acid, this is a dead ringer for a Northern Hermitage or Côte-Rôtie. A gorgeous, dense purple color to the rim, sweet, juicy fruit, full body, but again, incredible ...Read More »
