96/100 – Bob Campbell MW
94/100 – Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak

“Made with minimal intervention using little new oak, and no ‘industrial additives’. The wine is unfined and unfiltered. Elegant, ripe syrah with violets, pepper, plum and subtle mocha flavours. Quite a seamless wine with appealing sweet fruit and nicely integrated flavours plus an appealingly silken texture. Impressive.” – Bob Campbell MW

“So floral and expressive on the nose…really nice varietal character: cool climate peppery Syrah with some incredible texture.” – Jamie Goode

Tasting Note: A classic cool climate Syrah from one of the most well regarded Syrah vineyards in Sonoma, Las Madres. The wine is fermented with 40% whole cluster and sees a very small amount of new Hungarian oak. The wine opens with elegant aromas of violets before the bright and showy blueberry aromas start to stand at attention followed by flavors of raspberry tart, and the palate showcases a perfect balance between acidity and silky tannins.
