Winemaker Notes

Blackened crimson. Ginger and white pepper spice the edges of black fruits, liquorice and Kalamata skins, smokey bacon and bitter chocolate. Virgin tight tannins, liqueur-like richness within the flavor profile is defined with remarkably focused and precise acid profile. Rolling flavors mingle on the light/medium weighted mid palate and a powerful finish of spicey Syrah follows.

Critical Acclaim

RP 97
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Syrah Hickinbotham Vineyard combines a voluptuous flavor profile with enough ripe tannin to evolve for 6-8 years. Drink it from 2015 to 2031.
Rating: 97+

ST 94
International Wine Cellar

Opaque violet. Initially brooding nose quickly opened to display powerful raspberry, kirsch and violet scents. Vivid red and dark berry flavors are corralled by nervy minerality and silky tannins, with anise and rose pastille notes building on the back end. Blends depth, sweetness and finesse with a deft hand, finishing with mounting sweetness but no candied character. Pretty cool stuff.

Wine Spectator

Rich and ripe, displaying a peppermint character that adds interest to the generous blackberry and cherry flavors. Firm tannins support the nicely focused finish. Best from 2009 through 2016.
