International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 10111

Good red-ruby. Knockout nose combines musky blue fruits, black raspberry, truffle, smoke, herbs de Provence , olive brine and exotic spices, lifted by a crushed rock element. Then much less open in the mouth, with dark berry fruit currently dominated by earth, spices and saline minerality. Finishes classically dry and very long. I'd hold this still-youthful syrah for at least two more years before pulling the cork.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 174

The 2005 IX Syrah Estate is a dense purple-hued wine of polished elegance and finesse, subtle but intense aromatics offering up notes of earth, lard, meat, spring flowers as well as black and blue fruits. It is buttressed by good acidity, and fine, yet sweet tannins. This medium to full-bodied wine should evolve effortlessly for a decade or more. There are less than 400 cases of the estate wine. Ann Colgin and her winemaking team have been making Cabernet Sauvignon from the Herb Lamb Vineyard since 1992, but the production seems to get smaller and smaller every year.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Intense and concentrated, with tightly wound pepper, spice, wild berry, currant and fresh leather flavors that slowly and gracefully unfold, revealing layers of complexity and depth and finishing with a long, layered, persistent aftertaste. To be released spring 2008. 411 cases made.
