    Winemaker's Notes:

    #26 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

    Our 100% estate wines include four vineyard designated Syrahs. These highly stressed vineyards average a yield of only two tons or less per acre, resulting in wines true to each vineyard's unique terroir.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The first of the Syrahs is the saturated purple 2006 Syrah Cailloux Vineyard (with 4% Viognier in the blend). It displays a Cote-Rotie-like nose of smoked meat, game, and bacon with a dollop of burnt sugar and blueberry making an appearance. Layered, plush, and super-rich, this full-bodied, pleasure-bent effort has exceptional length. Difficult to resist now, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Plush and polished, this brims with cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors that are nicely shaded with streaks of mineral and green olive. Supple, harmonious and expressive as the finish keeps sailing on and on. Best from 2011 through 2018. 744 cases made.

    Deep ruby-red. Head-spinning aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, raspberry, black olive tapenade, Szechuan peppercorn, gunflint and beef jerky. Deep, sappy and saline, with superb energy to the flavors of dark raspberry, musky brown spices, dark chocolate, black olive and pepper. Finishes with big, broad, dusty tannins and outstanding lift and length. Real wine-class syrah, expressive from the start but gaining in energy with extended aeration. This was better after 24 hours in the recorked bottle, with flavors of blackberry, black olive and pepper dominating. Winemaker/owner Baron points out that this is his flagship wine, with a production of 750 cases.
