Super brooding beauty. Where do I begin? Full-bodied, finesseful, multi-layered. Depth for days. Black and green olives, hung meat, dark earth, stone on the tongue. Gorgeous texture and exceptional length. The descriptive words could spill from my mouth indefinitely. Take a taste to find your own words.

Wine AdvocateCo-fermented with 3% Viognier, the 2015 Syrah The Beautiful is fabulous, bursting from the glass with exotic aromas of violets, blackberries, panforte, black olives and lychee nuts (fanciful though that mélange sounds). On the palate, it's full-bodied, velvety and lavishly textural, cutting a broad swath across the palate, with a deep core of dark fruit and pungent savory nuance, concluding with a fine-grained, mouthwateringly sapid finish. It's a compelling Syrah that brooks no argument.

Wine SpectatorBroad and densely structured, with deep and focused blueberry, crushed rock and garrigue flavors that take on intensity toward big but refined tannins. Best from 2021 through 2025. 949 cases made.
