2013 Andremily "No. 2" Santa Barbara County Syrah

SKU #1251892 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark I love the wines from Jim Binn’s Andremily label, and the 2013 Andremily No 2 is an incredible effort that offers blockbuster styled aromatics with an elegant, seamless, silky style on the palate. Crème de cassis, jammy blackberries, ground pepper, and exotic lavender notes change beautifully in the glass, and while it’s going to be very long-lived, it’s already a joy to drink. Enjoy this blend of 85% Syrah, 11% Mourvèdre, and 4% Viognier anytime over the coming two decades or more. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The second release from Andremily's Jim Binns, the No 2 is an utterly profound blend of 85% Syrah, 11% Mourvèdre and 4% Viognier that saw a touch of whole cluster fermentation and 23 months in 62% new French oak barrels. Its inky purple color is followed by an incredibly pure bouquet of creme de cassis, pepper, caramelized meat, violets and hints of lavender. Big, full-bodied and luxuriously textured, it has a firm, structured, concentrated mid-palate as well as ripe tannin, notable freshness and a finish that just won't quite. Give this incredibly youthful, even backwards 2013 four to five years of cellaring, and enjoy bottles over the following two decades. Hats off to the team at Andremily!

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 No. 2 is a very pretty wine, but it is also less tannic and less structured than most wines of the vintage. Inky blue and purplish fruit, menthol, spice and licorice are all fused together. This is an especially ripe, voluptuous 2013. While the 2013 is very appealing, I would have liked to see a bit more vintage character. On the plus side, though, the 2013 will drink well upon release, something that is quite rare in this vintage. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2016)
