International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 135

(scheduled to be bottled in December 2008, too) Inky purple. Brooding blackberry and boysenberry aromas are complicated by Asian spices, vanilla and licorice. Broad and sweet, with forceful raspberry and boysenberry flavors, youthful tannic grip and an explosive, palate-staining finish. There's serious weight and concentration here, but admirable vivacity too.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 177

From a cooler year, the 2005 Syrah Seymour's Vineyard exhibits a more European personality than the classically Californian 2004. The 2005 reminds me of a broodingly backward, dark purple-colored Hermitage from the northern Rhone. Aromas of scorched earth, creme de cassis, truffles, and graphite emerge from this cuvee. With remarkable density, structure, precision, and freshness as well as sensational equilibrium (despite its weight and intensity), it should be at its finest between 2012-2025+.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Intense, firm and structured, with spicy white pepper, sage, dried herb, mineral and dusty berry flavors that are compact, focused and full-bodied, ending in a tight, tannic finish.
