Wine Enthusiast – “This bold, juicy Syrah opens on streaks of blueberry jam and sweetly spiced blackberry compote. While fresh and forward in fruit profile, it’s grounded by an earthen, tarry undertow of minerality and a fringe of fine-grained, penetrating tannins. It’s ready now but should hold through 2026.” (91 Pts)
