SKU #1029036 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark **Cellar Selection** Young and tannic, with nettle and thyme-infused blackberry and cedar flavors that are locked down with astringency. Very complex and earthy. Needs at least 4–6 years to blossom. Best after 2011. Inner quote mark (10/2009)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard Hillside Estate boasts a complex bouquet of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, tar, camphor, and black fruits. This full-bodied Syrah possesses admirable acidity, a lovely texture, elegance, and overall harmony. It is a stylish, concentrated wine to consume over the next 8 to 10 years. Inner quote mark (6/2008)

Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This sits hidden behind its oak for now, with muddled flavors of black cherry, pine resin and smoke. It will come together with a few years in the cellar. Inner quote mark (2/2009)

K&L Notes

This wine is 100% Syrah from the Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley. Bottled unfiltered, it is packed with spicy berry fruit and notes of vanilla from aging in oak. A classic Central Coast Syrah to enjoy now and over the next eight years.
