“Espresso, black olive and floral notes zoom from the glass, backed by layers of rich, creamy black cherry, plum, blackberry, smoke, cured meats, iron, graphite and savory herbs, making this a complex, complete red. Blueberry, black olive, cassis, violet build up towards the savory, spicy mid-palate in perfect balance, all one could ask for in a Syrah. The tannins are amazingly supple, imparting a velvety feel to the long, juicy, smoky finish. Makes one wonder how a wine can be this hugely concentrated, while supremely elegant, luscious and fresh?” - California Wine Advisors

“More in the style of the 2013, the 2015 Syrah Judge Family Vineyard boasts a rich, concentrated, powerful style that’s still in need of 4-5 years or bottle age. Classic Syrah notes of beef blood, scorched earth, ground pepper, and meaty black fruits all define the bouquet, and this beauty is full-bodied, tight, tannic, and focused on the palate. It’s a gorgeous, long-lived wine.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
