Obsessed with this wine. Rich yet fresh acidity... Bright blackberries, blueberries with a graphite inky smell and flavor. Medium plus body, nice ripe fruit, delicate tannins, medium persistence. Lovely easy drinking wine!

BlackBerry and dark cherry flavors in this beautiful medium-bodied wine. Shows great balance for the age with just a touch of gritty tannin in the wine. Some rustic notes, also. Really nice

Incredible dense dark color. Very dense flavors. Could use another year or two of aging.

NYAS: Not Your Average Syrah. This is idealist cool climate California Syrah and it shows in its translucent, natural wine color and high tone aromatics. It's brethren are Failla and Copain. Opening notes of Violet's and blackberry, smoky campfire, green olive and sandalwood. Sharp and directed on the palette with flavors of deep cherry, plum, blackberry and cracked black pepper. Intense but light on its feet. Benchmark producer

Riper vintage and not the pepper-bomb I expected. Nose smelled riper than the palate showed. In the mouth the wine was medium weighted with good structure and acid. Should age well. First wine I've had from this producer. More than a solid effort. Look forward to trying more.

Feral and sanguine in 2012, with a red core of fruit and spice.

Lovely, bramble berry fruit. Sage, evergreen. Decanting now...
