    Critical Acclaim:

    The opaque purple-colored 1999 Syrah Reva reveals notes of bacon fat, cassis, spicy oak, and an Hermitage-like character. It comes from the coolest section of the vineyard, and perhaps that's why it seems the most French-like.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep, saturated ruby-red. Expressive aromas of mulberry, black raspberry, spiced meat, gunflint, cardamom and smoke. Chewy and concentrated, with a saline impression of extract; hints at exotic spices. Sweeter and more pliant than the estate's '99 grenache, but still a rather reserved style of California syrah despite its density. Finishes with noteworthy power and persistence.
