94Vinous / IWC

...fresh, delineated and full of nuance. Medium in body and gracious, with striking aromatic lift...fabulous... A burst of sweet red cherry, pomegranate and rose petal punctuates the finish in this compelling Syrah...

93Jeb Dunnuck

…packs serious amounts of fruit and texture. Blackcurrants, blackberries, smoked earth, and peppered meat notes, full body, ripe, sweet tannin, and a clean, lengthy finish...

91Wine Spectator

Focused...with a lively core of acidity and tannins framed by blackberry, smoky anise and crushed rock accents.

90Wine Enthusiast

…big in blueberry, with a savage feral component of compost and sage. The smoky oak and tannin are intensely intertwined, while a back note of dried herb recalls the Old Wold.


United States, California, Sonoma County

Sonoma County is not an AVA, but it is a commonly used informal designation for wines made outside of more specific AVAs within Sonoma, which is a large wine producing region just west of Napa Valley. Though Sonoma is often overshadowed by its glamorous neighbor Napa Valley, it has a long history of wine production. The area specialized in jug wine until the mid-20th century, when Sonoma producers took a cue from Napa and started improving quality. Unlike Napa, where Cabernet Sauvignon is king, Sonoma specialized in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, though excellent Cabs are produced too. There are at present 16 AVAs within Sonoma County, and, like much of the West Coast of the United States, new AVAs are created in Sonoma County with regularity. Some Sonoma appellations, such as the Russian River Valley, are renowned for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.


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.
