Can you smell density? Well, I can in one whiff of this very heady Syrah. Compact and powerful. It unleashes black and red fruit, broken stone, iodine, hung meat upon the senses. Iron fist in a velvet glove. A wine for the ages. - Charles

97+ Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)
“The 2016 Syrah Cattle King Upland Vineyard comes from Snipes Mountain and has a singular, pretty, fresh style with more obvious acidity as well as tannins, yet it still stays in the plush, sexy style of the estate. Blue and black fruits, blood orange, violets, and exotic spice notes all define the bouquet and it’s full-bodied, incredibly pure and seamless on the palate. It’s a beautiful wine that’s going to come together nicely for 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for over a decade.”

95 Points, James Suckling
“From a sloping plot of deep river rock, this has a fresh array of red and blue berries with a fine, stony edge. The palate has a very sleek, composed feel with such length and composure. The purity of blackberry and blueberry flavors is entrancing. Holds so fresh. Drink this now or hold for a decade or more.”

The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.
