Wine Enthusiast, 95 Points 

"Extreme amounts of cracked black pepper spice up the crumbled lilac, dark-black-plum and snappy red-currant aromas on the dynamic nose of this cool-climate bottling. There's a wild zestiness to the palate, where the peppery spice plays well with black-raspberry, lavender and rosemary flavors." 

Jeb Dunnuck, 94 Points 

"The 2018 Syrah Estate Sta. Rita Hills is another rocking value. Seeing roughly 40% stems and all neutral oak, this deep purple/plum-colored 2018 gives up gamey, Northern Rhône-like notes of peppery herbs, tapenade, smoked black fruits, and violets. It tastes like a Cornas from Matthieu Barrett and will drink beautifully for a decade." 

Wine & Spirits, 94 Points 

"This radiates coolness in its scents of smoke and pine needles, lavender and clove. The flavors are rich blackberry compote, but the wine has the acidity needed to deliver a precise finish." 

The Somm Journal, 93 Points 

"Five different clones are planted on well-drained sandy loam and fermented 40% whole cluster with skin contact for 35 days. The ripe plum and plum skin that define the palate of this dense red are seasoned with spiced tomato, black peppered pomegranate, and a brushy heather finish." 

Wine Advocate, 92 Points 

"The 2018 Syrah Estate has a medium ruby color and bright, lifted scents of cracked pepper and mint with touches of olive and tar and a core of fresh blue and black fruits. The palate is concentrated, layered, fresh and lifted with a ripe, grainy frame and long finish." 

Alcohol: 13.9%
