Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 184

An unfined/unfiltered blend of 45% Syrah, 38% Grenache, and 17% Mourvedre, aged 32 months in a combination of wood vessels, the prodigious 2006 James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red exhibits beautiful sweet creme de cassis, black raspberry, blackberry, truffle, smoke, and herb notes. This spicy, rich, full-bodied effort should drink beautifully for a decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube Issue: Web

Pushes the pedal on ripeness, touching on jammy, full-blown and concentrated. Blackberry, graphite, plum jam and wild berry fruit is mouthcoating, as are the tannins. With air, gains a measure of finesse. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre.

Aromas: deep carbon with saturated cherry and plum sprinkled with lavender-infused sea salt and wet quartz Palate: again, quite expansive with full throttle, nearly primal flood of graphite and salt leading to smooth butterscotch and black raspberry on the mid-palate Impression: Wickedly concentrated, with plenty of viscous, textured flavor elements, again the high alcohol is masked for the most part by the copious fruit body. Strict satisfaction for the fruit hedonista. If you want to stand out in a crowd, here is your weapon...
