2007 Red Car "The Fight-Knockout!" California Syrah

SKU #1075457 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very distinctive, intense, spicy and aromatic, with scorched rock, dried berry, tobacco, cedar and savory herb flavors that fan out on the palate, maintaining a very tight focus on the long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2016. 514 cases made. Inner quote mark (2/2010)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark By contrast to the wines above, this one is a bit blockier and on the fleshy, full-bodied, somewhat heavy side. It leaves very little behind in its search for depth and concentration, and it succeeds in the quest, and thus seems directed towards a different set of Syrah buyers than is the more finely crafted Cuvée 22. Acid rises in the latter palate in order to provide a much needed touch of balance, and given its tannin and unintegrated acidity, this one belongs in the cellar. Inner quote mark (3/2010)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby. Exotically perfumed bouquet of candied dark berries, cherry pie, smoked meat and incense. Lush black and blue fruit flavors show very good concentration and are supported by velvety tannins. Pliant and already approachable, finishing with strong sweetness and good clarity. It wouldn't be a crime to drink this now but I'll bet that it will be even better in a few years. Inner quote mark (12/2009)
