    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Syrah Five Shooter is straight up gorgeous. A massive wine that somehow holds everything together, it offers a wild array of cassis, blackberry, white chocolate, underbrush and pepper that flows to a full-bodied, layered Syrah that has masses of fine tannin and enough substance to evolve for decades. A blend of 85% Syrah, 5% Grenache, 3% Petite Sirah, 5% Roussanne and 2% Viognier that was fermented with 20% whole cluster and aged 22 months in 59% new French oak, it opens up beautifully in the glass and should be decanted if drinking anytime soon. Drink 2015-2030.

    The Wine Advocate

    The 2010 Grenache Five Shooter has turned out even better than I had expected. An utterly vivid, compelling wine, the 2010 is supported by persistent notes of graphite-infused minerality that give the wine much of its energy. Seamless layers of blue/black fruit sit on that razor's edge of salinity in a Grenache loaded with class, finesse and pure refinement. A kaleidoscope of flavors hits the palate on a superb finish that is given an extra dimension of lift from the inclusion of 20% whole clusters. The blend is 75% Grenache, 16% Syrah, 2.5% Mourvedre, 4.5% Roussanne and 2% Viognier, aged mostly in neutral oak for about 20 months.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Bright purple. Heady aromas of black raspberry, bitter cherry, dark chocolate, violet, olive, espresso, bacon fat and cola; smells like there's a lot more syrah in here. Sweet, dense and lush, with deeply pitched black and blue fruit and bitter chocolate flavors supported by a firm spine of acidity. Finishes very long and ripe, with fine-grained tannins and mounting mineral and spice notes.
