2013 Andrew Murray "Tous les Jours" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah Top Pick!
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 »

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)

2012 Domaine des Deux Puits Syrah Côtes Catalanes

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Syrah comes from 20 to 40-year-old, hand-harvested vines. It was fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel, aged eight months in concrete tanks, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Perhaps that explains its fleshy, chewy mid-core, and attractive blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with hints of licorice and incense. This fruit-driven, substantial Syrah possesses silky tannins. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years." (2/2014)

A rich, powerful wine, the 2012 hits the palate with stunning depth and richness. The style here is a bit riper and more immediate than the single-vineyard Syrahs. There is plenty of personality in the glass. What a gorgeous and promising wine this is." (2/2014)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "DuMOL fashions three noteworthy Syrahs which probably receive less attention than they should because of the winery’s high visibility and credibility for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The 201 ...Read More »

2012 Avennia "Arnaut-Boushey Vineyard" Yakima Valley Syrah

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from 100% Syrah and most likely the best vintage of the wine to date, the 2012 Syrah Boushey Vineyard Arnaut is a smoking-barrel sample that’s loaded with potential. Blackberry, pepper, bloody meat, salty minerality and earth are just some of the nuances here. This full-bodied effort has fantastic texture, substantial, yet sweet tannin and a terrific finish. It should evolve nicely for 3-4 years and drink well through 2027." (6/2014)95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice" This wine shines with notes of smoked meat, mineral, dark coffee and earthy funk. The flavors are de ...Read More »

2012 Hocus Pocus Santa Barbara County Syrah

Our friends at Black Sheep Finds, a project which began in 2005 when Peter Hunken (Piedrasassi/Holus Bolus) and Amy Christine (AOC Restaurant) make bottled their first Syrah under the "Hocus Pocus" label. It developed an immediate cult following and since then their production has expanded to include a small range of delicious wines that offer great value for the money. The 2012 is a blend of Syrah from two vineyards - the cool Watch Hill Vineyard in Los Alamos and warmer, sustainably farmed Harrison-Clarke Vineyard - that was aged for 12 months in one-y...

2011 Quarter Acre Syrah Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay

Quarter Acre is a small project from highly acclaimed winemaker Rod Mcdonald. This tiny range of wines represent small productions for tiny vineyard parcels (hence Quarter Acre) from sites that he thinks have a unique expression of terroir. These are his most "edgy" wines that push the boundaries of non-interventionist winemaking in pursuit of purity and authenticity of place. This Syrah comes off a pure river gravels parcel on Mere Rd in the heart of the on the Gimblett Gravels. Vines are very low yielding giving power and concentration. All fruit is ha... Read More »

2008 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep purple-black in color, the 2008 Grange puts forward a very complex nose packed with aromas of mulberries, layers of baking spices, cloves and cinnamon with nuances of minced meat, anise, potpourri and whiffs of dried mint and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, taut and very spicy in the mouth, it shows touches of sandalwood and Chinese five spice complementing the layers of dark fruit flavors. It is framed by firm, grainy tannins and a refreshing acid line before finishing very long with aniseed and lingering blackberry preserves notes. This is clear ...Read More »
