Reviews For This Wine


 
Wine Advocate | 94

The 2005 Syrah James Berry Vineyard is sensational, as one might expect from this grand cru site. The wine has fabulous purity of fruit, blackberries and cassis intermixed with licorice, camphor, and a touch of crushed rocks. It is powerful, but at the same time, the cool limestone soils seem to give it an elegance that belies the wine's weight, richness, and power. Its dense purple color, wonderful, multi-layered mouthfeel, and stunning finish of close to a minute make for a compelling Syrah that should drink beautifully for 10-15 years.

Pure and rich, showing ripe, lively blueberry and wild berry aromas, with fragrant notes. Firms up on the finish, where this flexes its tannic muscles. 289 cases made.

94 pts (RP). Wet smoke, dark chocolate, creosote, black currant and chalk aromas emerge with air. The aromas carry well to the palate where the sweet black fruit are full and supple on the finish. Short term cellaring of 4-5 years is suggested or a good splash in a decanter will let the wine show its best. The structure, concentration of fruit and sound acidity will surely provide for 10 plus years of age ability.
