California meets Northern Rhône. Beefy and savory, with black fruit and a lilac aftertaste. Still young and will probably be peaking in 2-3 years.

Eucalyptus, lavender, blue fruit. Quite nice at this stage, especially the nose, but admittedly young. Hoping this has more in the future. Not at the 96 rating just yet.

Peppery, smooth, smoky, hints of leather. The pepper has a wonderful lingering effect. Absolutely stunning and very memorable profile on the palette. - clary Ranch, Sonoma Coast, 2015

Simply the best domestic Syrah I’ve encountered in 30 years of wine! 12% ABV... brilliant black pepper and dark fruit intensity... but so frigging light. A-R is/are fast becoming one of my top three producers.

Great small producer Syrah with tart blueberry and blackberry. Olive and smoke on the back end. Paired perfectly with the dry aged Tuscan ribeye.

That brie cheese rind on the nose in something else.
