Taste and Critical Acclaim:
JD 98 pt Jeb Dunnuck
Leading off the Syrahs and showing gorgeously, the 2019 Syrah Cailloux Vineyard offers a seamless, layered, multi-dimensional style in its sweet black raspberry, currant, leafy herb, charcoal, spring flower, and violet-laced aromas and flavors. More medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has flawless balance, ultra-fine tannins, a thrilling core of sweet fruit, and one hell of an impressive finish. Rocks Syrah doesn't get much better.
JS 97 pt James Suckling
An expressive nose of cracked black pepper, black cherry and an array of dried herbs. Medium-to full-bodied with incredible spicy character. So much going on here. Silky, fruit-soaked tannins. The supple dark fruit is accented by peppercorn, dried ginger, bay leaf, basil and oolong. Umami. Superb. Co-fermented with 4% viognier. Drink or hold.
WS 97 Wine Spectator
Dynamic and well-sculpted, this Syrah is Washington at its best, offering rich and fragrant river stone, blueberry, fresh violet and bacon fat flavors that build tension and distinction on the long, savory finish. Drink now
