2011 Donelan "Cuvée Christine" Sonoma County Syrah

SKU #1283116 91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2011 Syrah Cuvée Christine is one of the more complete wines in the range. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco all meld together in a relatively juicy, expressive Syrah from Donelan. Violets and rose petals add perfume on the finish. Overall, the Cuvée Christine is a racy, hugely appealing Syrah with tons of near-term appeal. The 2011 spent 22 months in French oak, 35% new. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Syrah Cuvee Christine is a cross-vineyard blend from various sites. About 40% whole clusters were used along with indigenous yeasts, and the wine spent 22 months in 35% new French oak. There are 800 cases of this attractive wine that came in at 13.9% alcohol. Black cherry, black olive and forest floor scents jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored Syrah. Medium-bodied with excellent ripeness, supple tannins and a spicy, peppery, meaty finish...(RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)
