2008 Martinelli "Hop Camp Vineyard-Gravel Lens" Russian River Valley Syrah (Previously $65) Top Pick!
2008 Martinelli "Hop Camp Vineyard-Gravel Lens" Russian River Valley Syrah (Previously $65)

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. This full-bodied, beautifully textured Syrah has an overall seamless feel ...Read More »

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 "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.

2011 Qupé "Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard - K&L Selection" Edna Valley Syrah

Arguably the most popular of the co-branded wines with our staff last year was the 2010 version of this wine so it had a lot to live up to this year. The good news is the staff is every bit as excited about it this year and we hope that enthusiasm will rub off on you.

2013 Copain "Tous Ensemble" Mendocino County Syrah

90 points Vinous: "The 2013 Syrah Tous Ensemble is fabulous. Inky dark blue/purplish fruit, smoke, licorice, grilled herbs jump from the glass. 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. Drink now through 2023. 1,680 cases made." (3/2016)

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.

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 »

2013 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah

92 points Vinous: "Stolpman's 2013 Syrah Estate is juicy and expressive, with plenty of Mediterranean herbs, dried flowers, black cherries and underbrush. A wine of real personality and character, the Estate captures the essence of what makes Ballard Canyon Syrahs so compelling; which is to say an interplay of dense fruit with expressive varietal aromatics. The Estate is made mostly from young vines, with about 50% whole clusters. This is my favorite of the Stolpman Syrahs. Some of the other selections are bigger and more powerful, but the Estate has, in my view, the best ...Read More »

2014 Tensley "Colson Canyon Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another blockbuster is Tensley's 2014 Syrah Colson Canyon. Yields were down close to 40% for this vineyard in 2014. The only wine to see new oak, it spends roughly 11-16 months in 40% new French oak prior to bottling. It offers incredible notes of graphite, olive tapenade, white pepper and decadent levels of black raspberry that flow beautifully to a full-bodied Syrah that has a huge mid-palate, plenty of tannin and a monster finish. It should have 10-12 years or longevity. (JD)" (8/2015) 91-93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard is a big, bombastic wine. Tens ...Read More »

2010 World's End "Wavelength" Napa Valley Red Wine (Elsewhere $70)

Its saturated purple color is followed by aromas of flowers, blueberries, blackberries, forest floor and spice. The wine hits the mouth with medium to full body, glorious fruit, sensational purity, wonderful texture and length, and a finish that lasts 40-45 seconds.

But they felt that the climate and terroir of the valley also held great potential for Italian and Rhône varieties. Mick Unti says this about his delicious 100% Syrah: "This 2012 Syrah really illustrates the best attributes of this excellent vintage.

Tar, smoke, licorice and black fruit flow through to the huge, voluptuous finish. Stylistically, the Frei Road is quite different from the other Syrahs in the range, much of which can be attributed to the farming, which is done by the Martinelli family. After 2014, Dehlinger discontinued the Frei Road, which does seem to make sense, as the wine is a bit of an outlier in this range, despite its obvious beauty. Whe ...Read More »
