2013 Andrew Murray "Tous les Jours" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The Syrah Tous les Jours is a quintisential Santa Ynez Valley Syrah. It is simultaneously Bold and Balanced, Rich and Smooth, Fruit Forward and Earthy. It is impossibly dark and full-bodied, without ever going over the top. It is heavily inspired by Northern Rhone Syrah (Hermitage) and Australian Shiraz (Barossa Valley). The aromas and flavors are dominated by black cherry, raspberry, white pepper, forest floor and toasty oak. It is absolutely unique and special expression of Syrah. Moreover, It is a style that one can enjoy every day." (3/2015) K&L Notes: Do you eve... Read More »

2011 Qupé "Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard - K&L Selection" Edna Valley Syrah Top Pick!
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. Bob Lindquist was more than happy to work with us again this year and put together this 100% Syrah bottling from certified Demeter Bio-Dynamically grown vines in the cool Edna Valley Appellation. Unmistakably Syrah from the first sniff of the nose the bold cracked black pepper, fried bacon,... Read More »

2012 Michael & David "6th Sense" Lodi Syrah

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Richness (of both flavor and texture) marks this deeply colored, full-bodied Syrah. Aromas of ripe blackberry and licorice coupled with flavors of clove and blackberry jam make it luscious yet not overly big. It has the firm tannins and good balance for aging through 2019."

Juicy blackberry and blueberry flavors are complicated by notes of allspice and violet, with a smoky quality sneaking in on the back end. Supple tannins build with air and give shape to the long, spicy, penetrating finish. Very fresh and very syrah, with fruit to burn.

2012 Copain "Tous Ensemble" Mendocino County Syrah

Copain's Tous Ensemble wines are approachable, everyday drinkers sourced from fine Mendocino County vineyards. The character is food-friendly and versatile for a pop-and-pour with some pedigree. From the winery: "Our 2012 Tous Ensemble Syrah is a medium-bodied blend of grapes from Mendocino County. The body is lightly textured with medium tannins. Bright acidity accents the palate of dark brambly fruits, hard spices and an earthy core. Drink now, though it will improve over the course of five years."

2013 Carlisle Sonoma County Syrah

Mike Officer did not think his flagship Papa's Block Syrah was good enough to be bottled on its own, so it was blended with a parcel of Sonoma Mountain fruit for this year's Syrah. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke and licorice all jump from the glass in a plump, extroverted Syrah to drink while the fruit retains its juiciness. Hints of lavender, violets, mint and dark spices wrap around the finish. I am not sure I have met a winery owner quite like Mike Officer before. Of course, Officer is well- ...Read More »

2012 DuMol "Jack Robert's Run" Sonoma Coast Syrah

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "***Three Stars*** Intensely spicy with a wealth of pepper and game tagging it as Syrah in no uncertain terms yet also wonderfully deep in ongoing blackberry-like fruit, this exquisitely structured wine manages to be big, balanced and uncommonly well-polished all at the same time. It is showy in some ways and still nascent in others, and it impresses as a wine with great places to go. It would be a shame to pour it before its fifth or sixth birthday, and it should continue to grow for at least twice as long."

Willowbrook is a largely under-the-radar label from Joe Otos, winemaker at Owl Ridge Wines in Sebastopol. We've got some great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from choice vineyards from Willowbrook in the past, and now this Syrah. It comes from the Altes Vineyard, located in the Rincon Valley area in the middle of Sonoma County--not far from the hot Kick Ranch vineyard.

2012 Unti Dry Creek Valley Syrah

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."

Edmunds St. John is a Rhône blend specialist making wine in Berkeley, California since 1985. The Fenaughty Vineyard, located at 2,800 feet on the south side of the American River where the soils are volcanic clay-loam, produces a smokey, gamy wine that just might be a dead-ringer for young Crozes-Hermitage.

2012 Hitching Post "Big Circle" Santa Barbara County Syrah

Pinot may be the big star of Santa Barbara, especially since the movie Sideways, after which the Hitching Post and its wines have been very popular indeed.

And only the most patient and nurturing of vintners can make great wine out of it. Only somebody who really takes the time to understand Syrah's potential...can coax it into its fullest expression.
