2013 Zaca Mesa Santa Ynez Valley "Z Cuvee" Red (Elsewhere $20)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "For one of their lower-priced bottlings, this blend of 55% Grenache, 40% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault is a great deal. The nose shows exuberant black raspberry, scarlet rose petals and fresh lilacs against a backdrop of dewy thyme and oregano. That herbal component carries strongly to the palate, giving nuance to tangy plum fruits. The savory touch would pair with everything from pasta to Asian-spiced beef." (6/2017)

2012 Baker Lane "Sonoma Coast Cuvée" Sonoma Coast Syrah

From the winery: "The 2014 Cuvee is again a selection out of our Estate vineyard production, always a good thing but perhaps never more so than in this exceptional vintage. In many respects, it is a near carbon copy of our breakthrough 2012 effort: deep blue violet, penetrating aromas of black fruits and meaty/savory elements, all backed by well integrated tannins and crisp acidity. This wine was blended to be an earlier drinking expression of the year's bounty (and with a touch of air it begins to explode in the glass). Given how it holds up and develop... Read More »

2014 DuMol Russian River Valley Syrah

94 points Wine Spectator: "**#24 in the Topp 100 Wines of 2016** Plush, rich and impeccably structured, with floral blueberry and raspberry aromas accented by smoked pepper and complex, expressive flavors that combine mineral-tinged tannins with plump fruit. Best from 2018 through 2030." (9/2016) 91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Insistently and very confidently fixed on lightly spicy, ripe berry fruit and doing a deft balancing act between refinement and richness that allows a good deal of both, this very well-structured wine may be a bit constrained by its youth, yet it shows plenty of substance and de ...Read More »

2015 Tensley "Colson Canyon Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah

94-97 points Vinous: "Another highlight, the 2015 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard brings together so many of the elements that make Tensley's Syrahs so compelling. Intense in its aromatics and palate feel, the 2015 hits all the right notes. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, raspberry jam and a dollop of French oak are some of the signatures. Because of the low yields, the new oak is a bit high in 2015, but all the elements are very nicely married. The Colson Canyon is shaping up to be another gem from Joey Tensley. This is a superb set of wines from Joey Tensley. The 2015s are terr ...Read More »

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.

2014 Tensley Santa Barbara County Syrah

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2014 Syrah Santa Barbara is a sexy, sweetly fruited and voluptuous Syrah that offers up a rockin' bouquet of blueberry, blackberry, violets and pepper. It should drink nicely on release and over the following 5-6 years. Santa Barbara County’s Joey Tensley continues to make ripe, textured and voluptuous wines that deliver serious bang for the buck. The latest 2013s and 2014s are all outstanding. However, recent vintages are pushing on the sweetness level, and in a number of cases, there’s obvious residual sugar in the wines ...Read More »

2014 Beckmen "Estate Purisima Mountain" Ballard Canyon Syrah

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A fabulous value that delivers on all accounts, the inky colored 2014 Syrah Purisima Mountain (100% Syrah aged 16 months in 35% new French oak) knocks it out of the park with its ripe, decadent black fruits, barbecue smoke, licorice and smoked meat-laced aromas and flavors. Rich, fat and unctuous on the palate, with plenty of freshness and purity, it tastes like it costs two to three times the price.

Medium to full-bodied, fruit-loaded and forward, with tons of plum, cracked pepper and garrigue, it has notable tannin and a great, decadent and heady finish.

The sip is very full and hefty in body, allied with a juicy acidity and fruity character of concentrated blackberry that's imminently appealing. More elegant touches of lavender, rosemary and incense round out the palate." (3/2017) 91 points Vinous: "The 2014 Syrah Estate is surprisingly succulent for a young Stolpman Syrah, which Peter Stolpman attributes to warmer nights and softer extractions.

2012 Epiphany "Colson Canyon Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah (Previously $40)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I think the first wine from this vineyard for Epiphany, their 2012 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard is shockingly good. Inky purple in color, with tons of blackberries, blueberris, ground pepper, underbrush and earth characteristics, this beauty is full-bodied, concentrated and just loaded with that incredible California fruit that could come from nowhere else. Seeing 30% whole clusters and 21 months in equal parts 3-year-old and 1-year-old barrels, It has excellent mid-palate depth, good tannin and a great finish. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years.

2014 Jeff Cohn Cellars "Rockpile Vineyard-Haley's Reserve" Rockpile Syrah

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Syrah Haley from Rockpile, is 100% Syrah aged 16 months in different sized French barrels. Thirty percent whole clusters were used. This is more structured, mineral-dominated and masculine than the So Serine, which is a quintessential, elegant, feminine, but super-rich style of Syrah. This is also rich, but more virile, backward and needing several years of bottle age. This full-bodied classic should drink well for 10-15 years and readers should approach it like they would an Hermitage from France’s Northern Rhône Valley. One of my favorite win ...Read More »

2015 Bedrock Wine Company North Coast Syrah

A huge, richly textured wine, the 2015 North Coast Syrah offers unreal quality for the money. The 50% whole clusters are pretty much buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. (AG)" (3/2017) 90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Mildly spicy with suggestions of black pepper and no more than quietly hinting at Syrah’s gamier traits, this impressively extracted, well-muscled effort is as notable for its structured solidity as it is for i ...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.

2015 Halcón "Alturas" Yorkville Highlands Syrah

94 points Rhone Report: "The 2015 Syrah Alturas is also a beauty that has a passing resemblance to a good vintage of Guigal’s Côte Rôtie la Mouline (just with less oak). Violets, incense, spring flowers, blackberries and blueberry notes all flow to a full-bodied, elegant, seamlessly textured Syrah that has plenty of classic pepper and spice, solid mid-palate depth and ripe tannin on the finish. It needs an hour in the decanter if drinking over the coming 2-3 years, and will have 15+ years of overall longevity. (JebDunnuck.com)" (7/2017)

Tobacco, licorice, earthiness and grilled herbs wrap around a core of dark fruit in this intriguing, beautifully layered Syrah. The 2012 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. This is the most expressive of the three 2012 Syrahs I tasted.

It's gives up tons of classic Cali Syrah notes of brambly blackberries, plums, licorice, violets and pepper herbs to go with a medium to full-bodied, plump, pure and straight-up delicious style on the palate.

2014 Morgan "G17" Monterey Syrah

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Good Value* We are never surprised by the quality and consistent value that Morgan’s Syrahs provide, but this exceptionally well-made effort earns an especially appreciative tip of the CGCW cap. It is rich, full and fleshy with great varietal integrity, and its deep, very precise, blackberry fruit is infused with plenty of the grape’s distinctive pepper-and-game spice. It is at once both sturdy and surprisingly well-mannered with an inkling of polish that is bound to tempt early drinking.
