RATINGS

94Stephen Tanzer

Explosive aromas of candied dark berries, incense, violet and patchouli, with woodsmoke, olive and Asian spice... candied violet and licorice notes on the sweet, impressively long finish ...suave marriage of power and energy...

18Jancis Robinson

Meaty, scented, creamy - lovely judgement of fruit, spice and oak. Silky, refreshing, peppery. Very impressive.

PRODUCER

Lillian Winery

Lillian Winery was started in 2004 when winemaker Maggie Harrison made a small amount of Syrah from the celebrated White Hawk Vineyard. Harrison was an apprentice to Manfred Krankl at Sine Qua Non for nearly a decade, and is now an acclaimed winemaker herself. She sources grapes from the Central Coast of California. Harrison is also winemaker and part owner at Antica Terra in Oregon. Lillian makes several Syrahs.

TYPE

Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
