International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 153

($74; 16.2% alcohol) Glass-staining purple. Blackberry, boysenberry and licorice pastille on the nose, with mounting spice and floral notes and a strong wallop of cracked pepper. Deeply pitched black and blue fruit flavors expand with air and pick up strong spicecake and candied flower notes, along with velvety tannins. More backward than the Lorraine today, and showing a darker profile. The finish completely stains the palate and lingers with intense floral and spicy persistence. This is still a baby.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 190

The 2006 Syrah Reva, coming from parcels of dark, volcanic soil, has off-the-chart richness and intensity. This thick, opaque-purple colored wine offers up notes of scorched earth, ground pepper, and blackberry liqueur intermixed with cassis, licorice, camphor, and tar. The wine is spectacular in every sense. Full-bodied and certainly not for wimps, this is a remarkably concentrated yet very nuanced and intense wine that should age for 20 more years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A luxurious style, rich, layered and dramatic, yet stays stylishly textured and balanced, offering a fleshy core of deep blackberry, wild berry and plum, with shades of tar, mineral, pepper and sage.

Decanted for 5 hours prior to consumption. Well received once again. Bouquet of flowers and berry perfume jumps from the glass. Purple to the rim, full bodied and juicy. Well integrated tannins, viscous, broad mid palate and palate coating dark fruits and floral notes....outstanding.
