2011 Donelan "Obsidian Vineyard" Knight's Valley Syrah

SKU #1152375 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From a cooler vintage, the 2011 Syrah Obsidian Vineyard shows much more cedar, white pepper, and spice, with that smoky black fruit that’s the hallmark of the site coming through with time in the glass. A dead ringer for a terrific, old-school Hermitage, this full-bodied effort is still youthful but is certainly drinking nicely today. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Syrah Obsidian Vineyard is medium garnet colored and scented of liquid licorice, plum pudding and blackberry preserves with nuances of garrigue, underbrush and smoked bacon plus a hint of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with a taut structure of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness to support the earthy layers, finishing long and savory. (LPB) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2011 Syrah Obsidian Vineyard is an intense, exotic wine. Tobacco, game, wild flowers and smoke are all alive in the glass. The 2011 is wild, intense and totally beguiling. Wild, savory notes dominate a huge, powerful Syrah that needs time to fully come together. Tasted next to the 2010, the 2011 has a bit less overt fruit and more savory overtones, much of that from the inclusion of 33% whole clusters. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2014)
