This revered Syrah, and for good reason, has it all. Cured olive, game, dried herbs, dark fruit all hung on velvet theater drapes. Just wow. There is only one Royal City in American wine! Food Pairings: Lamb Ragu with olives and peppers.

Wine AdvocateA candidate for the wine of the vintage, the 2013 Syrah Royal City is as expansive, sexy and voluptuous as they get in the vintage, hands down. It's deep ruby/purple color is followed by incredible notes of wild herbs, lavender, gamey meats, olive paste and sweet dark berry fruits. Full-bodied, relatively forward and charming, it still packs a wealth of material and has building tannin, all suggesting it will drink nicely for 10-15 years.

Wine SpectatorRich and opulent, this towering wine offers layers of blueberry, plum and clotted cream flavors, with just enough mineral character to stay honest. Comes together into a vivid and expressive finish. Has plenty of power, but remains graceful. Best from 2018 through 2023. 652 cases made.

Harvey Steiman, 2016
