2006 Lillian "Blue Label" California Syrah

SKU #1186317 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The second release from Maggie Harrison, previously an apprentice at Sine Qua Non, the 2006 Syrah from Lillian is even better than the excellent 2005. Totally sourced from the White Hawk Vineyard, and aged in 65% new oak for 23 months, there are 508 cases of this beautiful Syrah. Notes of creme de cassis, blackberries, spice, incense, flowers, ground pepper, licorice, and subtle smoke are followed by a full-bodied, layered, multidimensional, big (15.6% alcohol) Syrah. Beautifully balanced, elegant, and pure. Inner quote mark (8/2009)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky purple color. Exotic, powerfully scented bouquet of boysenberry, cherry-cola, vanilla, sandalwood and dried rose. Deep, sweet and smoky, offering palate-coating dark berry liqueur, bitter chocolate and candied vanilla flavors, with strong spiciness and florality providing lift: nothing remotely shy about this wine. The finish echoes the vanilla and smoke notes and clings with velvety tannins and great tenacity. A real head-turner, and even more baroque than the excellent 2005. This needs a peppery piece of grilled red meat. Inner quote mark (12/2009)
