Jeb Dunnuck, 96 Points 

"Not destemmed and seeing an extended maceration, the 2018 Syrah Estate Donna's is another Cornas look-alike that boasts a saturated purple color to go with a huge nose of smoked black fruits, beef blood, ground pepper, crushed violets, and bacon fat. It's rich, full-bodied, concentrated, and beautifully balanced, with both tannins and acidity. This beauty will keep for 10-15 years and is up with some of the top examples of Syrah in this report." 

Wine Enthusiast, 96 Points 

"Cracked black pepper, black currant and dark violet make for a cool-climate expression with tons of floral smoothness. There is heft to the sip, where black pepper, dried herbs and black fruits are sliced by a zesty acidity." 

Wine & Spirits, 95 Points 

"Set on a modest rise of almost pure sand, Donna’s Block tends to produce the purest expression of syrah among Melville’s four blocks. In 2018, it grew a wine that borders on the hedonistic in its youthful exuberance, with wild aromatics of smoke and olive, clove, mocha, dried beef, lavender and thyme, and a core of blueberry and blackberry flavors that feels deep and dark. And yet the acid-tannin structure shores up the wine with remarkable grace and precision, so that it still manages to be one of the raciest syrahs in the Central Coast."
