Jeb Dunnuck, 95 Points 

"The 2017 Syrah Cuvee Christine comes from a mix of Vineyards and offers a Côte Rôtie-like perfume of black raspberries, smoked game, bouquet garni, and spring flowers. Playing in the medium-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a classic meaty, bacon fat-like character, supple tannins, beautiful up-front fruit, and outstanding length on the finish. I’d be thrilled to drink bottles any time over the coming 10-15 years.

Wine Advocate, 93 Points 

"Medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Syrah Cuvee Christine has a nose of chargrill, roasted meats, coffee beans and spicy blackberries, with wafts of sage and dried herbs. The palate offers nuances of pepper and herbs with savory, dark fruits and an abundance of fine, grainy tannins, finishing long.

Winemaker Notes:  

"This 100% Syrah blend is an intense assemblage of some of our favorite Syrah vineyards in Sonoma County. The usual suspect vineyards are present in this blend; Kobler, Lawer, Steiner and Cardiac Hill. We refer to the Cuvee Christine as our gateway drug to Syrah. It runs the full gambit, has fruit, spice and savory. There's something for everyone here. The Cuvee Christine possesses not only great length, but great breadth on the palate. This wine’s quality to price ratio is unmatched.
