International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 132

($40) Inky ruby. Vibrant raspberry and blackberry aromas, with exotic Asian spice and mineral notes adding complexity and lift. The energetic, clean red berry flavors deepen with air and take on a more serious mien. Finishes with blackberry and cassis flavors and outstanding length. This was fermented with 70% whole clusters, which Guthrie says "adds nerve and vibrancy."

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 174

The 2005 Syrah Thompson Vineyard (made famous by Ojai's Adam Tolmach) is seriously endowed, with notes of licorice, ground pepper, incense, Chinese black tea, roasted meats, and copious quantities of blackberry and cassis fruit. Admirable stuffing, full-bodied power, and dazzling delineation make for an impressive Syrah that should drink well for at least 10-12 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Tightly wound, this is intense yet balanced, with rich, spicy, peppery, beefy dried currant and berry fruit that has a rustic and meaty edge, adding to its complexity and dimension. 378 cases made.
