RATINGS

96Vinous / IWC

...bouquet evokes dark fruit preserves, sandalwood, candied flowers and spicecake, while cola and smoky mineral nuances build in the background. Fleshy and energetic on the palate, offering densely packed blueberry and violet pastille flavors that show outstanding definition and tension for their heft. Supple and appealingly sweet on the impressively long, floral-driven finish, framed by velvety, steadily building tannins.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Sweet, succulent fruit with smoke and floral perfume.

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.
