"From the producer's estate vineyard, this savory, sultry wine is sublime in peppery, wild game. Its textures are alive and bright in acidity, with piquant black and red berry providing inviting juiciness. Made in small quantities, it's an incredible value for the quality, a wine that will sing on the table, and become more complex in the glass. Editors' Choice." -Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points
"The 2012 Syrah Sonoma Coast Cuvée is absolutely gorgeous. Black cherries, savory herbs, lavender, menthol, licorice, tar, clove and new leather meld together in a supple, radiant Syrah endowed with tons of pure appeal. Rose petal, mint and pomegranate notes add resonance on the finish. This supple, inviting Syrah is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the fruit remains vibrant." - Vinous Media, 92 Points
"100% organic and biodynamic estate grown Syrah. This will impress both California and Northern Rhone followers. The nose is reminiscent of a top-flight Hermitage Rouge with aromatics of white flowers, lavender and cracked blacked pepper. Textbook palate of black and blue fruit quickly lures you in. Layers of provencal herbs, pepper and cured meats follow through on the mid-palate. The finish is full, balanced and lingering. This is high-tone package with plenty of stuffing, but quite mouthwatering and aromatic. This is a seriously ridiculous price for the quality that lies in the glass. This will drink well and evolve over the next five years." - NM
