Jeb Dunnuck, 94+ Points 

"The 2020 Syrah Roll Ranch Vineyard comes from a warmer site not far from Ojai, and while I'm not sure about the blend of the 2020, this cuvée can normally include a little bit of Viognier. Its deep ruby/purple hue leads to a more medium to full-bodied, rounded, plush profile that includes red plum and blue fruits, sweet, velvety tannins, classic notes of peppery herbs, violets, and orange blossom, and a great finish. It's another prodigious, incredibly impressive Syrah that readers will love to have in their cellars. It will evolve for at least 15 years.

Vinous, 92 Points 

"The 2020 Syrah Roll Ranch is laced with dark red cherry, tobacco, cedar, mint and earthy notes.  In this vintage, the Roll Ranch is one of the more aromatic and approachable Syrahs in the range.  It offers lovely upfront appeal, if perhaps a bit less seriousness than the other bottling.  Even so, all the elements are very nicely balanced.  A closing flourish of red-toned fruit, cedar, tobacco and incense lingers." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"This 2020 Roll Ranch Syrah is a big and lusciously fruity Syrah, a product of the hot and sunny vintage. The terrific thing about this bottling is the way it melds very ripe fruit with layered aromatics and piercing freshness. The nose is heady with fruity scents of berry pie, black cherries and framboise. There’s also that particular woodsy-spicy base note from thoroughly lignified stems, while violet liqueur and mint bring lift out of the glass. The palate is similar—a bombast of dark stone fruits and berries, round for a moment, but too driven to stay there. Halfway through it reveals its mineral spine and more of that warm stemmy spice, then it finishes with trebly raspberry and earthy cocoa.
