2015 Halcón "Alturas" Yorkville Highlands Syrah Top Pick!
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.

2015 Andrew Murray "Tous les Jours" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

Rhone Report: "The 2015 Syrah Tous les Jours comes from a multitude of sites in the Santa Ynez Valley and is 100% Syrah that saw a touch of whole cluster and aging all in neutral barrels. I always love this wine and it reminds me of a youthful Côtes du Rhône with its raspberry, pepper and garrigue-scented bouquet. Forward, delicious, beautifully textured and ready to go, drink it over the coming 2-4 years. I’ve always loved the wines from Andrew Murray, and his latest 2015s are rock solid across the board. In addition, they all have singular, impeccably made characters ...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. (MK)" (10/2016) K&L Notes: From the winery: "The 2013 Holus Bolus Syrah is sourced entirely from John Sebastiano Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills. This wine... Read More »

2014 Qupé Central Coast Syrah (375ml)

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 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 »

Aged just over a year in 28% new French oak, it has solid freshness, good purity and fine tannin, and at 22 bucks is a terrific value. (JD)" (8/2016)

2015 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

91 points Rhone Report: "The 2015 Syrah Sta. Rita Hills is another terrific wine that's always a good value. Black olives, pepper, gamey meats and both kirsch and blacker fruits all emerge from this elegant, seamless and lightly textured style that has tons of character. Drink it over the coming 3-4 years. Melville Winery has some changes recently with the departure of winemaker Greg Brewer and Chad Melville taking over the winemaking helm.

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 »

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.

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.

In 2014, Relentless has 11% Petite Sirah, which, along with the personality of the year, kicks up the aromatics and flavors in a meaningful way. Lavender, mint, violets and crème de cassis notes are laced into the super-expressive finish. The 2014 is shaping up to be a real gem. (AG)" (10/2015)

2014 DuMol "Jack Robert's Run" Sonoma Coast Syrah

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Syrah Jack Robert's Run Estate Vineyard is powerful, dense and explosive.

This sumptuous, exotic Syrah will provide thrilling drinking for years to come.

2014 Marietta "Gibson Block" McDowell Valley Syrah

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Estate Syrah Gibson Block, a Syrah-based field blend, exudes depth and concentration. Black cherry, blackberry, cloves, leather and licorice give the wine its inner sweetness and textural richness, but there is also plenty of aromatic freshness and lift. Violet, camphor, savory herb and scorched earth give the wine a real sense of gravitas. I was quite frankly blown away by the wines I tasted at Marietta this year. Brothers Scot and Jake Bilbro have decided to each concentrate on separate properties. In practical terms that means Scot is now run ...Read More »

2011 Carlisle "Steiner Vineyard" Sonoma Mountain Syrah

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Yet another new wine, the 2011 Syrah Steiner Vineyard presents an intriguing melange of dark fruit, savory herbs, licorice and menthol. This medium-bodied, highly expressive Syrah should be approachable upon release. The 2011 has a gorgeous core of dark red and blue fruit and terrific overall balance without too many of cooler climate, gamier Syrah notes. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023. (AG)" (4/2013) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark purple. Powerful, expansive aromas of dark fruit liqueur, sandalwood, mocha, star anise and potpourri.

(RP)" (8/2009) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Bold, ripe, intense and vibrant, with a full-throttle core of dark berry fruit that's rich, focused and full-bodied, offering blackberry, wild berry, plum and black cherry, picking up spice, flora, tar and black licorice flavors in spades."
