94 points James Halliday: "The youthful colour has the depth to promise abundant black fruits, whole berry fermentation underlining the promise. It has the succulence of Langhorne Creek, but with a raft of flowery/spicy notes not so common in the region. Mocha oak adds another dimension, cuddling up to the plump tannins. Hedonistic? You bet." (05/2017)

94 points Vinous: "Bright medium red. Highly perfumed scents of red raspberry, strawberry, flint, iodine and iron, plus a hint of orange peel that Christophe Baron attributes to magnesium in the soil. Not a particularly fleshy style but compellingly aromatic and precise, offering Côte-Rôtie-like notes of flint, black olive and violet and a lightly balsamic quality. Finishes with harmonious tannins and excellent length. This is already utterly captivating. (ST)" (11/2016) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek and evocative, with expressive aromas of violet, ...

100 points Decanter: "A perfect wine: extraordinary chypre and warm earth notes and the powerful fruit follows. Phenomenal Shiraz with 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. (MJ)" (09/2018) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Rich, concentrated and intense, the 2014 Grange delivers exactly what we've come to expect from this Penfolds icon wine. It's full-bodied, velvety in feel and loaded with plummy fruit, framed in vanilla and cedar. Dense, powerful and tannic, it should prove to be long lived, even by Grange standards. Gago doesn't rate the vintage overall th...

93 points Vinous: "(12.6% alcohol): Opaque ruby. Sexy, floral-accented aromas of red and dark berries, star anise and black pepper. Lively, incisive black raspberry and violet pastille flavors are lifted by zesty minerality and show no excess weight. Acts a lot like a high-class Cote-Rotie. Finishes bright and nervy, with youthful tannic grip, excellent persistence and lingering florality. (JR)" (11/2013)

94 points Wine Spectator: "This has layers of warm cherry, plum and raspberry compote forming the core, while apple wood, black tea and iron notes run underneath. The finish has a fresh and racy edge, leaving a mouthwatering feel despite the heft. (JM)" (11/2018) 93 points Vinous: "Glass-staining ruby. Highly perfumed black and blue fruit, potpourri and incense aromas are complemented by hints of exotic spices and smoky minerals. Seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering densely packed, appealingly sweet blueberry, cherry preserve, floral pasti...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Syrah Estate checks in as 100% Syrah that saw a small amount of stems. It spent 18 months in 25% new French oak. Deeply colored, it displays a thrilling bouquet of smoked black fruits, violets, smoked meats, charcoal, and graphite. Deep, rich, incredibly fleshy and flamboyant, with perfect balance, it's a serious, world-class Syrah that will keep for 10-15 years." (04/2019) 94 points James Suckling: "There’s a very polished feel to this with concentration and depth of flavor that is buoyed by the effortless balance. Bla...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cote Rotie La Belle Helene is perfection. In this vintage, Ogier cut back the barrel aging time from 32 months in largely new oak casks to 18 months. Ogier’s remarkable flexibility depending on vintage conditions and the quality of the fruit is admirable. He thinks this may be the greatest bottle of wine he has ever made, and it’s hard to disagree. An inky/purple color is followed by notes of pen ink, graphite, forest floor, licorice and abundant black and blue fruits. There is little evidence of new oa...

Bedrock notes: "Though 2013 was our last year making the Weill "Exposition" wines, we still made a single wine in 2014 using the same methods. Using a large percentage of co-fermented Viognier and a moderate fraction of whole-cluster, we vinified the wine using native yeasts. It then spent three years in 100% new oak barrels of various sizes without racking. Though only an individual wine, this was created in the same mold as the Weill wines of 2011-2013. Thus, it is an outlier stylistically for us, albeit one that many enjoy, particularly the fans of...

97 points James Suckling: "The blackberries and cloves are intense on the nose with licorice and hints of eucalyptus, too. Full body, extremely fine tannins and citrus rind undertones. Tight and composed. I love the length. Drink now." (08/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Syrah Suisassi is a very ripe and opulent expression. If Syrah loves the summer heat, it has soaked it all up here. It is almost too much of a good thing, and the subtle nuances are buried deep within the considerable girth and width of the mouthfeel. Black fru...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From a vineyard located near the estate and a blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier that saw 25% stems, the deep purple-colored 2016 Syrah Estate In The Hills has a Côte Rôtie-like perfume of red and black raspberries, spring flowers, and smoky, meaty notes. It's softer and more sweetly fruited and sexy than the Rocks-driven Syrahs, has full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and a beautiful finish." (04/2019) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Containing a splash of Viognier, the 2016 Syrah In The Hills takes a page right from ...

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Similarly colored, the purple-hued 2016 Côte Rôtie La Brocarde incorporates 5% Viognier and comes from the La Brocarde lieu-dit and will see 26 months in new barrels. It offers more blue fruits, violets, and liquid rock characteristics, full body, a deep, stacked mid-palate, and building tannins. It's a primordial barrel sample that's going to require 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20 years." (12/2018) 94 points Vinous: "Vivid purple. Intense blackberry, cherry preserve, licorice pastille, bacon and vanilla scents ar...

Boscoe Wine Co., is owned by John Haskell and his son David Haskell, who take a minimalist approach to winemaking and do nearly all of the work by hand. The 2015 La Fai is from the certified organic Kimsey Vineyard in the Ballard Canyon AVA and was fermented with 11% Viognier, and about a third whole cluster. The wine was aged for nine months in 50% new and one-year barrels, and 50% neutral barrels.

Winemaker's Notes: "Made entirely of Syrah from Mossfire Ranch. This vineyard was planted in 1996 on steep hillsides and a rolling valley at the confuence of sun, snow and sea. The vineyard weathers 40 degree diurnal shifts. The extremity of the climate creates fruit of uncommon concentration and uniform ripeness. This newly released Rosé screams watermelon, young strawberry, orange peel and stony minerality. Flavors of melon rind, hibiscus and salinity dance across the palate while the juicy acidity rounds out this lively fun-going wine. The brightnes...

91-92 points Vinous: "Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe, dark berries, cherry liqueur and olive, along with exotic spice and floral qualities that build with air. Displays deeply pitched black/blue fruit and floral pastille flavors that are given energy, courtesy of an undercurrent of smoky minerality. Finishes sweet and long, with youthful tannic grip and lingering floral pastille and bitter cherry notes. (JR)" (07/2019) 90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Cornas Les Eygas from Nodin has a bright, juicy style as well as comp...

Morgan Peterson's Bedrock Wine Company produces wines that celebrate and express the historic and unique vineyards of California. Winery notes: "From the steep slopes of Weill a Way Vineyard on the western slopes of Sonoma Valley, this wine is the essence of Syrah. Cofermented with a small amount of Viognier, the wine has showy aromatics of pig fat and flowers (my current preferred band name) and pretty but dense fruit. Though this was the site we made the “exposition” wines from back in 2011-2013, this wine is made more like “traditional” Bedrock Syrah ...

Campesino Cellars is owned and made by husband/wife Griselda and Macario Montoya (Macario is the winemaker). They honor their Mexican heritage by naming their winery in honor of the Campesinos, the field workers (most of whom are Mexican) who tend to the majority of the vines in California Wine Country. The hands on their Syrah label are those of Griselda’s father Pablo Ceja, a career Campesino. The drawing is the work of Macario’s brother, Maceo Montoya. The wines, all Rhone-style, i.e. made from grapes of Rhone Valley, France origin, are “California st...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine, the 2015 Ermitage Le Pavillon comes from the Bessards lieu-dit on Hermitage, which is pure granite soils. I've said it before, but will say it again, this is unquestionably the finest, most singular vineyard for Syrah in the world. Cassis, graphite, smoked herbs, liquid rocks and violet aromas give way to a huge, concentrated, opulent and off-the-charts beauty that just hints at its ultimate potential. I wouldn’t think about opening bottles for at least a decade, after which it will keep for 4-5 decades." (0...

97 points James Suckling: "A very slick and polished edition of this wine that promises to develop steadily for a couple of decades. This will play the long game well. For now it has superb fresh fruit in the blackberry and red plum spectrum that is dusted with peppery aromas as well as spicy mocha-scented oak and hints of graphite-like dark stone. The palate runs a deep line of flavors, and tannins draw long with a sense of purpose and depth, carrying dark plum, mocha and blackberry flavors fresh into a succulent, lithe and juicy finish. A meticulously ...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Violet and lilac notes glisten atop the cassis fruit. A sleek iron spine is inlaid deeply through the finish. Very pure, with a long echo of savory. Drink now through 2026." (05/2019) 90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds, the 2017 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Fleurs de Mai comes from very old Syrah vines planted by George Vernay on the upper plateau. Prior to being planted to vines, the vineyard was a peach orchard, and Fleurs de Mai references a variety of peach. This medium ruby-colored effort gives up plenty of exotic, ...

Domaine Clos de la Bonnette was purchased in 1992 by wife and husband team, Isabelle Guiller and Henri Montabonnet. Isabelle had her eye on this abandoned vineyard site for many years before they moved forward. The main reason that the site remained unoccupied was because the hillsides were in complete disarray, as many of the stone retaining walls had collapsed over the decades due to neglect. Restoring this property could only be done as a labor of love, not a commercial venture. Isabelle and Henri did most of the restoration themselves, rebuilding the...

From the producer: "The fruit cold-soaked for 24-hours and was inoculated with yeast the next morning. Pumping over the Syrah was adjusted in duration and frequency, depending on taste and yeast activity (one to three times per day). The ferments were pressed off between two and four brix and then returned to tank. Once dry, the wine was racked off lees and inoculated for malolactic fermentation. MLF was done in tank and barrel, and upon completion, racked into barrel for 20 months."

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "The two Desire Lines Syrahs tag this tiny producer as a winery definitely worth watching, and, while both are very good efforts that are incisively spicy and marvelously vital that exhibit careful crafting and great persistence, this one gets the nod as our favorite by dint of its ever-so-slightly deeper fruit. It is so nicely composed that it is presently a little too easy to like, but this is a wine that is well worth the investiture of patience, and we see it only getting better and better as the next five or six years c...

93 points James Suckling: "So balanced and refined with a blackberry and mineral character. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a polished and beautiful finish. Drink now. " (12/2016) 93 points Vinous: "Dark purple. Powerful blueberry and cherry cola scents pick up spice, woodsmoke and floral nuances with air. Fleshy and broad in the mouth, offering juicy, impressively deep black and blue fruit flavors that show outstanding energy and focus. At once rich and lithe, finishing with serious power, resonating spiciness and smooth, fully absorbed tannins....

91 points Vinous: "The 2015 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is a wild, powerful wine that captures the essence of this cool Petaluma Gap site in its intense, savory personality. Black cherry, menthol, licorice, chocolate and black pepper give this mid-weight, persistent Syrah much of its personality. I would give the 2015 at least another year or two in bottle to soften. I imagine, though, the 2015 will always remain a bit brooding in personality. Bright, saline notes add considerable nuance as the wine opens up with air. Even so, the Syrah is the product of a vint...

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Le Mazel from Nodin has a straight-up classic bouquet of ripe black raspberries, red plums, crushed rocks, violets, and pepper. This carries to a ripe, medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, balanced 2018 that has moderate tannins, good freshness, and a layered, mouthfilling texture. It's a terrific Syrah..." (12/2019) K&L Notes: Remy Nodin founded his winery in 2008. Prior to that, his fruit was all sold to the large cooperative Cave de Tain. He farms 9 hectares throughout the northern Rhone including hol...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even more intense than the 2003, the 2002 Exile is a superb example of this fabulous vintage in Barossa. Black/purple-colored with sensational purity, a blackberry liqueur, cassis intensity, and beautifully integrated wood, alcohol, and tannin, this large yet brilliantly balanced effort can be drunk now, but promises to age effortlessly for 10-15 years." (10/2005) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and generous, teeming with spicy, peppery, slightly earthy blackberry, cocoa bean and tar flavors, finishing with fin...


91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Highly nuanced nose evokes blackberry, licorice, violet, bitter chocolate and black olive. Tightly wound on entry, then fleshes out with air to offer sweet black and blue fruit and licorice flavors and a lashing of cracked pepper. Quite youthful and dominated by its structure right now but this shows excellent potential. (ST) 91+" (06/2011) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Tightly wound, firm and spicy, with cedar, tobacco, dried berry, berry jam and anise notes that are full-bodied, focuse...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, fruity, deep and complex, with layers of blackberry and dark berry fruit that's well-focused, offering depth, exotic spices and concentration. Ends with a long, supple finish. Drink now through 2011. 111 cases made." (12/07) 92 pints Robert Parker: "The 2005 Syrah Twenty-Two represents an homage to the winery’s late founder, Mark Estrin. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by a beautiful bouquet of sweet creme de cassis, blackberries, licorice, pepper, and spice. Full-bodied, opulent, pure, and impressively endowed, ...
