Connoisseurs Guide to Wine 91
"Although many Syrahs go for the gusto, this carefully balanced and nicely proportioned wine achieves a bit of refinement while showing a good sense of fruity definition and richness. Its fine themes of lightly spiced berries are enriched with a complement of sweet oak, and it is both supple and smooth in feel. It makes a good case for the argument that the grape can make wines of polish and style, and it will comfortably accompany entrees that want a Syrah of genuine finesse."
