2009 Baker Lane "Estate" Sonoma Syrah (Previously $30) Top Pick!
2009 Baker Lane "Estate" Sonoma Syrah (Previously $30)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright purple. Youthfully wound-up aromas of blackberry, mulberry and violet, plus a strong note of licorice. Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors are given an exotic character by notes of violet pastille and star anise. Supple and expansive on the firm, gripping, intensely spicy finish. This textbook syrah should age well. (ST)" (5/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Syrah Estate Reserve is a peppery, meaty effort that gives up plenty of spice, ground pepper, green olive and rendered bacon fat to go with a medium-bodied, moderately concentrated and focused palate.

2010 Zaca Mesa Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The first winery to plant Syrah in the county continues to produce powerful but layered expressions. This delivers rich aromas of cherry, stewed plum and blackberry alongside sage and a wisp of vanilla. On the palate, it starts rich, until bright acidity and tannins bring balance amidst mocha and blackberry jam flavors and an oak-powered vanilla finish." (2/2015)

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

Praise for the last vintage of this wine from Antonio Galloni: "A rich, boisterous wine, the 2013 Syrah Tous Les Jours is all about fruit and texture. Dark red cherry, plum, black pepper and spice notes are all pushed forward in a Syrah that captures the generous personality of the wines of Santa Ynez. The style is bold and intense, with considerable up-front fruit and terrific overall balance. Once again, the Tous Les Jours delivers superb quality and value." (06/2015)

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

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. It was 70% destemmed and aged 10 months in neutral oak. It reveals terrific notes of cassis, peppered meats, blackberries, licorice and wood smoke to go with a full-bodied, ripe, yet beautifully balanced and layered feel on the palate. Given all the Syrahs and Pinot Noirs from Santa Barbara going for three times the price, the quality here is remarkable.

2013 Herman Story "Nuts & Bolts" California Syrah

Made from 100% Syrah that saw 16 months in 70% new French oak, it's the greatest vintage of this cuvee I've tasted and it offers off the hook notes of creme de cassis, melted licorice, caramelized meats, pepper and crushed flowers. Full-bodied, voluptuous and hedonistic, it's also seamless and balanced, with ultra-fine tannin, no hard edges and blockbuster length.

The wine is at once slightly viscous, fairly mouthfilling and very energetic, and, while never impressing as a powerhouse, its potent but polished flavors last and last.

In keeping with this amazing year, it’s full-bodied, juicy, succulent, flamboyant, with blueberry and blackberry fruit galore, lots of glycerin and a massive mouthfeel, but no heaviness or astringency characterize this stunning wine.

Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering juicy black and blue fruit flavors and sexy floral pastille and spicecake flourishes. Shows very good energy on the clinging, spice-driven finish, which shows sneaky tannins.

2013 Michael & David "6th Sense" Lodi Syrah

According to the winery: "From a black grape that makes red wine, the 6th Sense remains a huge player in the Michael David lineup. Super-saturated, big and juicy, it makes a bright, tangy impact. Full of flavor in the same deep-red tones as the aromas, tannins are tame. The mid-palate offers plum and blackberry, with a touch of mulberry."

2013 Beckmen "Estate Purisima Mountain" Ballard Canyon Syrah

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.

2012 Unti Dry Creek Valley Syrah

Mick Unti says this about his delicious red: "This 2012 Syrah really illustrates the best attributes of this excellent vintage. It is very dark, with intense blue and blackberry fruit, licorice and spice. It might be the most full-bodied normale Syrah we’ve made in years. If you drink this wine now, you might consider decanting it. I’m counting on this Syrah to age nicely over the next 4 to 7 years."

2014 Stolpman "Para Maria" Santa Barbara County Syrah

"I’m especially excited about Para Maria because it gives us another affordable red wine alongside La Cuadrilla," says Peter Stolpman. "100% estate Syrah, we chose the juiciest, most approachable, and easy-to-love lots for Para Maria. Sashi Moorman, as always, had a new experiment that would potentially optimize an early-release Syrah. He fermented a small portion of the wine carbonically to ensure a pure fruit profile and freshness."

2008 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Syrah
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Syrah (94RP, 93ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Broken Stones (79% Syrah, 13% Grenache, and the rest Mourvedre) has a bluish purple color to the rim, with the classic nose of camphor, charcoal, black currant, and blackberry with hints of licorice and smoke. This intense wine displays great fruit, some structure, and a beautifully seamless texture. It is more evolved and open than the 2007 was at the same time, and just slightly less profound. It should drink nicely for at least a decade." (09/2010)

1998 Dehlinger "Estate" Russian River Valley Syrah

According to Robert Parker: "The dense ruby/purple-colored 1998 Syrah Estate (615 cases) offers a straightforward bouquet of sweet black cassis, a nice texture, and a fleshy, generous finish. It is the fullest, richest effort of the 1998s." (08/02)
